    My dropdown  boxes do not work properly and will not allow for multiple selections.  I have the settings correct in the form.  It seems like it is not loading properly

    You can change this in the dropdown settings > advanced tab > multiple selections, see screenshot below:

    To select multiple options, users had to use CTRL or SHIFT key + left-mouse click. 

    The dropdown is not really friendly for multiple selections, so why not use the Multiple Choice field? Otherwise, use the below widget to have a checkbox in a dropdown:

    Thank you!  The checkbox with a drop down widget works much better.  I had the multiple answer field turned on with the other and it still did not work.  This appears to work!  Thanks!
