    Creating a fillable PDF; need to automate the creation of a drop-down

    Mwarren Level 1

      I'm quite happy with InDesign's form creation tools. It's obvious that they aimed to strike a balance between too much and not-enough. That said, there's one thing that I'm not clear if I can do or not.

       

      I am developing a travel expense form. There are number of line-items and each needs to have exactly the same drop-down box. The idea is that the end user will pick the cost category for the line item. Fortunately, I don't need to pass any of this data to a place. It's just going to be saved, printed and signed and then the paper copy will be submitted.

       

      That said, the list of categories will be around 20+. It would be nice if I could import them into the field preferences. It's not the end of the world if I can't, but it would sure save time. I realize I can just create one drop-down field and then copy/paste/rename a bunch more.
