Repeated List Box Items

    Asked on May 22, 2013 at 02:48 PM

    I have a list box with the same list of items that I repeat 15 times in my form.

    Is there a way to only have to edit that list ONCE and populate it to all the other list boxes?

    Currently, I have to go to every list box and edit it (which takes a long time).

    Once you have edited the first list, you may duplicate that one and just drag them down to positioned.

    Right click on the field, then click "Duplicate":

    I already know I can duplicate the field.  The problem is that after I have already duplicated all these fields, I have to go back and edit the list 15 times (for each of the 15 fields).  I would like to have a single list from which each of the 15 list fields draws their data.

    Actually when you duplicate the dropdown fields, its options will be carried over as well. However, if you'd like to edit each dropdown, you have to edit the rest as well or you can duplicate it again and remove the existing ones. Unfortunately, that's the only method you can do for now.

    Best Regards!
