    Previously you could paste a set of calculation values.  Now you must type in one by one.  This adds to the time and is very tedious.

    Secondly when you add an option to the middle of a list with calculation values the values shift up one so that the last option no longer has a value and the second from last option has the previously last option.

    This means manually editing all the options past the one you added.  

    This is to the point of being no functioning as I need to edit the list at least once a month.

    If you are referring to adding calculations from the scratch to fields, I believe you need to add them one by one since you need to add value for each option. However, if you need to pass filed value to another field you can cover related guide of ours:

    Can you please give us more details about the issue considering use case with related form so that we can assist you further?

    For the second issue, we are sorry for the inconvenience.

    I can replicate the issue on my end. I have escalated it to our developers and you will be notified via this thread when we fix the issue.

    Thank you so much letting us know the issue.

    a dropdown form element has options. using calculation values now means that you have to add the values one by one. whereas before you updated this function you could add all the values in a list by pasting them.

    Now, this does not work well since when you delete or add an option the corresponding calculation value does not stay with that option but becomes shifted to another option.
