Hello everyone,

I am encountering a problem when I want to create about 660 entries for a list box. Indeed I followed the instructions reported the topic " Using drop-down lists and list boxes" but the result expected does not happen.

When I copy and Paste, either everything goes into the caption box or only the first entry is taken and not the 659 others, which is, you will understand annoying. (Version 8.2.1.4029.1.523496)

If you want to copy/paste a list of values for a drop down or list box, the best way to do it is:

1) copy the list (one item per line)

2) select the drop down/list box

3) Under Object Tab > Field Tab (next to the + - buttons that you use to manually add items) click the clipboard icon.

That should do it for you. Let me know if you have any trouble,
