Multi-Choice Text-Box Document Rendering
The Text Box can be set to multiple choice when "Data Entry" property is set to "Check Boxes".
The default for such columns when rendered on a document seems to be a comma separated list with no currently available method to easily turn such a list into a "Bullet List".

A way to force each selection in the list onto a new line (Think Bullet List) in the document when it prints / renders would be a benefit as often this is what multi-choice text boxes are used for.

Ideally a property setting for preference between "Bullet List" and "Comma Separated" list or even "Hierarchical Bullet List" (but that last one might be a bridge too far....).

For document rendering it could be very useful in many types of pre-formatted PDF forms.

Hi Calvin

As a workaround you can use a Text - Formula column

Replace([Test], ",", "\n")

Where [Test] is your text check box column

Thanks Scott,
That's more or less what I did actually. Not quite as elegant I admit but used a workaround none-the-less.

Slava actually suggested putting this idea up so I figured why not. If there's enough traction it's one less workaround to build and it actually seems like it should be a rather simple fix on TD development end.
