    Unfortunately it is not possible, it can only copy a single choice from your Multiple Choice field even if "Multiple Selection" is enabled in dropdown list.

    Can you tell us the reason why you need to copy the value from your Multiple Choice field. We might be able to provide you a workaround for this.

    Please note that it is not possible to dynamically insert options in dropdown fields. If you have same option added in dropdown field as well, you can add insert condition to dynamically select the dropdown option based on the selection of checkbox question. But, you need to add separate condition for each option. Please check the screenshot below:


    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this works as expected: 

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning: 

    Please note that in the above form, selecting checkbox will also select the option in dropdown field but unchecking a checkbox option will not deselect the option in dropdown.

    You can only pass those values to a short text entry or other text fields never a dropdown.

    If ever a solution is presented we will tell you as soon as possible.

    Best Regards.
