Why aren't the dropdown (select boxes) standard, but instead some hacks?

So that you can customize the look and feel of the dropdown (borders, background, etc.)

Select the dropdown and set the options in the properties panel at the bottom left of the screen.

Thanks, is the triangle a bg image or how would i change that?


There is a problem with this implementation; unlike normal dropdowns, these stay open even if you open another one or ten more.


Would you consider in future providing a normal dropdown alongside this custom dropdown (a feature request)?

The triangle can't be changed. Maybe someday, yes I think is a good suggestion. The 'stay open' bug has been notified to the development team and the suggestion about a default dropdown too. Thanks!!

I have dealt with many products and companies behind them and you are one of the most open and positive minded ones out there. Good job!

Well, we think is the key to have a good product. You have to be humble if you want to be better.
