I’m using dropdown values for a “Project Name” data field. Some of the dropdown values do not show the text, but some do? Does anyone know why this happens, and if there is a fix? This used to work fine, but it changed a few weeks ago.

Hi @Russell_Nimura,

Adam from Airtable here. We’ve run into this issue before I believe.

When you suspect a formatting or text input issue (e.g., in this case, the user had invisible newline characters in select field tokens). Screenshot shows the issue, and screencast walks though how to inspect this in a browser’s developer tools

A quick fix for this can be to copy the text in the choice and repaste format free with command, shift, v on a mac.

Let me know if this helps~~
