Two columns with one field
I have a layout that would be really convenient to have one field divided into two columns. Currently I am using two fields but is inconvenient when I have to edit. Is there a way to do this with one field?
Not that I am aware of.. But you can always create another field (3rd) that would that the 2 fields you have and combine them into 1 field.
Why not just expand the one field all the way over to the end? Why 2 columns?
Maybe they'll have this in FM 13. Breaking it up in two columns allows me to make little lists that are easy to read like I have on the left. A list uses up the height of a single column.
I've searched all over and have seen others with the same or similar question but no answers. It would be a great feature to break up a field into columns where text would flow.
You can always just use one field and use the trim feature if needed.. Why do you need 2 fields?
Thanks. I'm not sure how to do that, but I will look it up.
Ok...got it.. Duplicate the field. Put the two fields side to side. Cover the bottom half of the left and the top half of the right. Type in one field but appears in two columns.
That would work too..
