    Ive created a from with drop downs. How can I set up ability to have the person write in the drop down. Right now it just says Option1, Option 2 etc.

    Ive created a form for our club players. There are 6-7 drop down catergotires. I need to be able to have the person type their infoirmation in each drop down. Example, the first drop down is their name, when they click in the name, it only gives them Option1, Option 2, Option 3. How can they type their information?

    Hi Sockers

    When you create a dropdown menu you can click on the right:


    And then change pre-defined text by desired options.


    As a suggestion perhaps a dropdown is not the best for the menu field, but that depends a lot on what you need.


    All the best!

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your question but if you wish to provide end users of the form the ability to type information into dropdown menus, they are not designed to work like that. With dropdowns, end users select an item from a predefined list. They don't enter extra information.
