Multi-select drop down list to appear in paragraphs rather than one line

Hi

This is really annoying... you currently have to scroll along to see what categories you have selected from a multi-select drop down list, instead of each selection appearing in paragraphs forming a list.

Does anyone know a work round for this? I realise you can't wrap text in field but memo field can. However you can't use a drop down list in a memo field. Is there a way to link field selection and then have it appear in paragraphs in a memo field?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers... Shae

Hello Shae,
Unfortunately, the standard fields can only display information on a single line. Only a memo-type field can display multi-liine information, but you cannot link a dropdown list to a memo field.
