I have about 20 input list field in a document. Is there a way that when I click on first input list field, the 19 others will automatically show the choice I made so that I wont have to be clicking on each field.

Thank you!

(EDITED TO ATTACH SAMPLE)C:\fakepath\Input list.odt

Here is the sample. The starting choice is "apple." Is there a way that when I choose "orange" in the first input list field, the rest will also be "orange." Going further, is it possible that when I choose "banana" or "milk," all the "an" will automatically change into "a."

(EDITED TO ATTACH FILE WITH MULTIPLE LIST) Thank you very much @mauricio.C:\fakepath\Multiple list.odt

I attach you, an option without macros, only I used User Fields and Conditional Text. You can edit any field, when save it, the all other fields autoupdate. The preposition "a" and "an", will change depend of value that you write.


[EDIT] ok, I attach an example with macros, please test you

Thank you. I will study on how to use this conditional text. This is really helpful.

But I want to be presented with a list of options from the start, so that I dont have to type my choice. All I will do is just click on it, and the rest of the fields will follow. Is this possible?

Thank you very much. This is what I need! Now to figure out how did you do it. Can you explain it? Or least do you have a link where I can learn the writing basic macros?

If you really want used all power of macros, I recommended learn Python. I started personal project for this:
