Custom List for drop down boxes

    Asked on April 04, 2012 at 04:54 AM

    I have a form where I will need to have multiple lines (20) containing the same dropdown box with options for each line.  I may have up tp 20 options for these boxes and I do not want to have to add the same options each time I use this drop down box. 

    Maintenance of these options will also be cumbersome with so many multiple of the same values.

    Is there a way to create a custom list (similar to those provided by JOTFORM) so that I can reference this list each time I add this drop down box for each line?

    If you want to have several instances of the same drop down list, the easiest way I can think of would be to copy the first list to your clipboard and paste the content into each subsequently created drop down:

    Alternatively, you could create a list in a text editor and save it for future use.

    Is this the sort of thing you were asking about?
