    Able to choose default dropdown selection and select multiple options

    Asked by MartinBoyle on May 01, 2014 at 05:56 AM
    Hi,
    Is it possible to not have to provide a default answer in a "dropdown" box?
    I would like to able to be enter an option in the top line, rather than as currently, having to leave it blank.
    I would like my customers to be able to select multiple options without having to select 1 option inparticular.
    Kind Regards,
    Martin

    Hello,

    Is it possible to not have to provide a default answer in a "dropdown" box?

    By default dropdown box doesn't have any option selected. You can change the default selection by choosing "Selected" 

    I would like my customers to be able to select multiple options without having to select 1 option in particular

    You can increase the height of the Dropdown Box and use the following keyboard+mouse controls:

    CTRL + Mouse Left Click - To select one item at a time

    SHIFT + Mouse Left Click - To choose all the options or select a list of a group of options

     

    If this is not what you are trying to achieve let us know so we can provide a correct answer to your questions.
