Do you want to be able to select only one category from a drop-down list?
In that case use the Combobox field in stead of dialog list. This way the browser will display a drop-down list and only the selected value will show in the field. If you click on the arrow next to the field the list will open and you can select another value.
When the document is opened in read mode, it will just display the selected value.

To set the number of lines to display of a dialog box, you need to set the propertie in the HTML-properties of the field.
Go to the last tab and in 'Other' type SIZE=1 to display only one line. The number after SIZE= defines the number of lines to display.
