You can select multiple values in a dropdown list by holding command (Mac) and clicking. The thing is, it seems that the only way to save those selections is to hit Enter or Return. I have a part of a layout where I want the ability for the user to click on a dropdown list and select one or more values and then click a button to run a script that processes those values. The problem is that clicking the button and starting the running of the script does not commit the selections to the field if multiple selections were made. The user would have to hit Enter and then click the button, which is a pain to train users to do. Is there a way to let the user select multiple values and automatically save or commit those selections at the time the button is pressed?
