    Why does the text get cut off in a drop down menu?

      Whenever I make a dropdown menu that has a response that is more than one line, the text gets cut off in the veiwer, is there a way to fix this?

          Hi,

           

          It sounds like you have authored a drop-down field that looks something like this in the Design view:

          As you know, the fillable form cannot display this multi-line choice label.

           

          Unfortunately, there's no way to correct this issue other than reducing the amount of text in the choice label or somehow creating enough space in the form to accommodate the text on a single line. For example:

           

          - reduce the amount of space allocated for the label text

          - reduce the text size of the drop-down field

            - increase the form width, then increase the width of the drop-down control

           

          I will log a bug against the authoring application for this issue. The current behavior is misleading.

           

          Thanks for the feedback.
