    I am sorry to hear th dropdown menu is not working for you due to size limitation.

    I haven't checked how much the values are but I did checked it randomly and see that out 6000 option values the form lists it is only 2619 values.

    I think if it is possible for you to split the data into multiple dropdowns, that would possible helps.

    I am not sure how many records a dropdown box can possibly display. A creating a ticket is created already about this issue, to our development team, however there is not a time frame for them to have it solved.

    If any other question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
