You need to use the Forms toolbar

by Bill Tumbleson In reply to issue

1) Right-click on the tool-bar area and add the "Forms" tool if not already there.

2) Place your cursor in the document where you want the drop-down list to appear (a field in a table is always a good candidate)

3) Click the Drop-Down Form Field icon on the Forms toolbar

4) Right click the form field in the document and select Properties

5) Add you items to the list (to have the first item in the list blank enter a space and move it to the top of the list)

6) Repeat for whatever lists you wish to create

7) On the menu go to Tools\Protect Document ... and protect at least the form fields (password protect if you desire)

The drop-down lists will work now
