Looking for quickly transform checkboxes or dropdowns to buttons? We have easy methods to do so from the editor.

Bulk conversion from selection:

  1. Select the content you wish to convert.
  2. Right-click to access the context menu.

This action converts all selected elements (checkboxes, dropdowns, and multi-select dropdowns) into buttons, while maintaining any previously selected choice and their negative states.

Conversion of a single element:

  1. Right-click on the checkbox or dropdown.
  2. From the menu, select 'Convert > Element to button'.

Converting elements to text

When you have a long list of checkboxes you would like to convert to clickable lines, use the 'Convert elements to text' feature.

  1. Select the elements you wish to convert.
  2. Right-click to bring up the context menu.
  3. Choose 'Convert > Selected elements to text'.

All the elements from the selection (checkboxes, dropdowns, multi-select dropdowns, and buttons) will be converted to text. In situations where lines did not have pre-selected content, Dilato will automatically uncheck these lines to preserve the original 'unselected' state.

Converting text to buttons

For converting multiple lines of text into buttons.

  1. Select content (it can span many lines).
  2. Right-click to open the context menu.
  3. Choose 'Convert > Selected text to buttons'. (Alternatively, you can press the button icon in the toolbar).

Each line's content will be transformed into a button. Commas within the text will serve as separators and create a button with multiple choices.

Please be aware that buttons do not support logic. Therefore, converting fields in a template that are assigned to logic will break any associated conditional actions.
