    Hi,

    It's really hard to match up dropdown options with their values since they're in separate tabs on the property window. Would it be possible to put them together on one tab side by side with the options and values?

    Right now I have to use a separate spreadsheet to keep track of them and copy / paste them in.

    Thanks.

    Just to clarify, you're referring to the Dropdown options under Options tab and the calculation values under Surveying tab?

    I think it wouldn't ease the issue if they're on the same tab but I understand that putting them on the same tab is way better.

    I believe the best thing you could do is to align them on a spreadsheet just like what you've mentioned or use a text tool.

    Also, take note that the first calculation value of the dropdown field must be 0, that is to represent the first empty option of the dropdown field.

    Anyhow, I'll escalate your request to our developers so it would be considered in the future updates.

    Thanks

    Yes, that's what I'm talking about. It would actually help a lot if they
    were not only on the same tab, but were in a grid side by side. In other
    tools I've used, this is the way it's presented so you see the Text field
    and the value side by side.
