Proper Display of Multi-Check Box Custom Field
on Oct 18, 2016 at 2:55:33 pm

Howdy,

I recently added a new custom field using a multi-check box to allow for multiple selections within the field as part of as system for easy sorting of catalog records.

The field contains several 15 individual boxes, and this is proving troublesome in terms of the GUI. Some of the check boxes disappear if the "Log Notes" window is not a large enough size to display them all. It would be ideal if the field would adjust to the size of the window and accommodate all of the check boxes by appearing to be in multiple lines.



Vs.



Is this possible? Or other suggestions of a custom field type that would allow 15 plus individual checks allowing for multiple selections?

Thanks for your time and input!

hi Lindsay

A Multi Grouping would allow you to select multiple values

Multi Grouping

Similar to grouping except that the clip can be tagged with any number of values from a list, for example a list of keywords.

When tagging a clip, start typing in the field to display the first matching keyword then use the Up and Down arrows to view other matches. Press comma (,) to start a new keyword or click on the asterix (*) button to display a chooser dialog.
