    Hi David! That's because checkbox fields only have a binary state (it is or isn't checked), whereas dropdowns have multiple options. You should (and definitely let me know if this isn't the case) be able to switch between multi-choice fields (which have a checkbox style option) and dropdowns without losing your data, because those fields both allow for multiple lines of options. Let me know if that's not the behavior you're seeing, and I'd be happy to direct this to the Support Team to investigate.

    Thanks!
