    Hello,

    I'm trying to use fill-in-the-blank to create a contract with partially pre-filled form fields. I'm having a hard time trying to format form fields with multiple selections, for example, if the client selects both fine art & portraiture options, how do I make those options appear correctly formatted in a sentence?

    Example sentence: We will be doing a fine art & portraiture shoot.

    Hello,

    I have checked and cloned your form. Unfortunately, there's no direct option to pass the Multiple Choice field data separately to the Fill in the Blank field. However, I have a workaround that might meet your requirements.

    1) Add Short Text fields for each option on the Multiple Choice field. If you have 3 options, then add 3 Short Text fields.

    2) Create an Update/Calculate condition to manipulate the text to appear on the added Short Text fields: How-to-insert-text-or-calculation-into-a-field-using-conditional-logic.

    Here's an example of the condition I made on the cloned version:

    And here's the result:

    Then you can use the field tags for the Short Text fields on the Paragraph field to display the answers based on the user's selection.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.
