@Ronnie can you refer to this documentation and describe which step isn't working correctly?

  1. So I open a new Trello Card
  2. Click on Custom Fields Button
  3. Click on +New Field
  4. Select Type as "Dropdown"
  5. Enter some values in "Name" field
  6. Enter some values in "Options" field
  7. This is where I have problems, I am unable to add/save options in the field

Press Enter key after typing the option value.

Hi all,

Having the same problem, I'm very surprised that few people only rised the issue.

Please share solution if you have a way to fix the problem.
