Hi, why can not dropdown Fields have the same "state" Choices in conditions as a text Field. For example Starts With, Ends With and Contains?

Dropdown Fields contains pre-listed items or controlled items where the STATE choices: Starts With,Ends With and Contains doesn't really effect the items in the dropdown.
Not like textfields where the user will still type in a random character or depending on the questions which is not pre-listed, having a broader STATE to work with.
I hope this information helps you.

Ok, I see.
But I have so many dropdown choices, and some of them starts with the same 3 or 4 letters, so that would have been lovely to use the starts with instead of making the same condition for each choice. So a workaround then is to create a textfield and calculate the value from dropdown to textfield and then create conditions with "starts with". :)
