Yup, my memory has failed. In the Highlighting Tool when I use the Labeling feature and I add an attribute with the data type set to "List", how do I define the list. I'm feeling lazy since I can't find any documentation.

Use the semicolon to separate the list values.

There are also several bugs I've found with labels and lists. 

  1. The lists are not ordered in the order you create the list.
  2. On a re-edit, you cannot get back to your original list values.  It brings up Logos' list of values based on what you typed.

This I was aware of - FL lacks the standard I was forced to follow ... always implement with a fixed order that can be predicted.

This I hadn't noticed ... I'll wait to tomorrow to try it and get annoyed. Thanks for the bug reports.
