How can I convert a text field to a list box?

I have several fields that are currently text fields. I want to avoid having to resize all the fields as well as re-setting the tab order.

Is there a quick way to do this?

Thank you!

I don't think there is a way of converting fields, eg changing it from one type field to another.

So you have to create the list fields manually, you may be able to do this very quickly though.

Create one field that is the correct size and shape/colour/properties etc. Right click the field and select 'Use current properties as default'.

Then right click the field and select 'Place multiple fields', in the following box you can slect position and amount of boxes needed.

I suspect you have text fields of various sizes so this may not save you much time if that is the case but it should help.

If you bring up the 'fields' navigation panel you can quickly select the tab order, just in case you did not already know that.
