The searchable dropdown field editor provides a way to use keyword searches to filter down a large list of values that are set in the list values properties text box.
The type of dropdown displayed will depend on whether multiple selection is allowed. Single selections allow a single value to be searched for and set, very similar to a standard dropdown menu but with the addition of support for searches.
When multiple selection is set each value selected is added as box with a cross icon which allows items to be removed from the list.
