How to make a multi select custom field display all selected options ?

I have setup a custom field of type multi select. I have a number of options that are a bit long. When I select more than four options, I can't see all of them when viewing (not modifying!) the issue. It shows like this :

My first long option, my second long option, my third long option, my fourth long option,

I would like to force JIRA to show all of them, i.e. even if it goes on multiple lines.
Is there a way of doing so ?

For some reason, the field didn't work properly thus my question.

The correct behaviour, that I now have, is that a number in parenthesis at the end of the first line indicates how many elements are hidden. By clicking on it, one can switch to multiline and see all of them.

Sorry, it was actually a problem with the display. It works now as intended.
