What is the easiest method for populating a drop down list?
Sorry, there currently isn't anyway to copy/paste individual choices into a multiple choice field. The choice list has to be typed in.(Note: you can copy/paste the entire choice field including choices so once you created your choice list you can use it in other places/forms)

Are you using Chrome? Someone else reported in the forum that copy/paste isn't working Chrome today. Try a different browser if you can and tell us if it works.
You just select the object hit CTRL-C and then CTRL-V to paste.
