Help with batch script user prompt

I have a script below that I'm trying to give the user options on what actions to perform. My syntax is wrong and was hoping for some help. I got a couple problems with my script that I don't know how to fix:

1.) How do I make a multiple line prompt? All my "echos" with the number legends aren't printing under the question.

2.) One of my options is to run ALL actions, but how do I run every subroutine if the user entered "1"?

I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.
@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem --------------- GLOBAL VARIABLES ---------------
rem ------------------------------------------------
SET SCRIPTPATH=C:\websites\tools
 
SET /P ACTION=Which action would you like to perform?

This should work:
@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem --------------- GLOBAL VARIABLES ---------------
rem ------------------------------------------------
SET SCRIPTPATH=C:\websites\tools
 
 
ECHO ALL Operations Below .............................. 1
ECHO MIRROR Development to Backup FTP .................. 2
ECHO MIRROR Development to Stable  ..................... 3
ECHO MIRROR Stable to Local Live Website ............... 4
ECHO MIRROR Stable to Remote Live Website .............. 5
ECHO MIRROR Local Sub-Sites to Development ............. 6
ECHO SYNC Local and Remote Sub-Sites ................... 7
SET /P ACTION=Which action would you like to perform?
 
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="1" GOTO DevToFTP
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="2" GOTO DevToFTP
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="3" GOTO DevToStable
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="4" GOTO StableToLive
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="5" GOTO StableToRemote
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="6" GOTO SitesToDev
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="7" GOTO SyncLiveRemote
GOTO:EOF
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem ------- MIRROR DEV TO REMOTE BACKUP FTP --------
rem ------------------------------------------------
:DevToFTP
rem CALL %SCRIPTPATH%\FTPSync\DevToFTP.cmd
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="1" GOTO DevToStable
GOTO:EOF
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem ---------- MIRROR DEVELOPMENT TO STABLE --------
rem ------------------------------------------------
:DevToStable
rem CALL %SCRIPTPATH%\FileSync\DevToStable.cmd
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="1" GOTO StableToLive
GOTO:EOF
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem ---------- MIRROR STABLE TO LOCAL LIVE ---------
rem ------------------------------------------------
:StableToLive
rem CALL %SCRIPTPATH%\FileSync\StableToLive.cmd
IF /I "%ACTION%"=="1" GOTO StableToRemote
GOTO:EOF
 
rem ------------------------------------------------
rem ---------- MIRROR STABLE TO REMOTE LIVE --------
rem ------------------------------------------------
:StableToRemote
rem CALL %SCRIPTPATH%\FTPSync\StableToRemote.cmd
