I set up fields with values just as described in this thread:

But in my project I don't seem to be able to pick any of the values. When I have picked a value in a picklist and clicked OK the value I picked is not shown in the field. I still see the complete list of possible values and not the one(s) I picked. This happens regardless of the setting for allowing only one or more values.

Thanks a lot in advance for any suggestions

Hi, Lise,

I use the field settings a lot and thought I'd check out your problem. The same problem occurs with me. I can add values to an existing pick list, but when I create a new field under Fields and Settings, it doesn't appear under Update.

Until now I have never actually added to the fields except incidentally by importing a TM export that has different or extra fields.

Perhaps someone from SDl is listening and can shed light on the matter.
