Creating Contact Fields

I'm new to ACT 2012 Pro and trying to create a "dropdown" phone label in contact view that can also change a corresponding phone field. For example, you could select "direct phone" or "main phone" from a field label and then the the adjacent phone field would link to that phone number.


I don't think this is possible, but thought I'd ask. It appears field lables are not able to become dropdown lists, just fields are. 


Also, does anyone know how I can create a note or memo field that "wraps around" or accept a hard return instead of the text just going on endlessly to the right of the field and out of view? I saw a memo field with up and down arrows in design manager, but can't seem to get it to show up in my contacts view.


Thank you.

Re: Creating Contact Fields

Only 'Memo' fields will wrap the text. They will automatically go to the next line when it reaches the edge of the field.

To enter a line break (in a Memo field), use the key combination: CTRL+ENTER.
