hi Ivan, Thanks for the screen shot is that possible for me to add a custom field of same type(multiple type) and name it as description and the newly added fields should also have the same behaviour as body field have. – Zakeer Sep 14 '11 at 11:52
you need to put some customizations to a new form to get similar behavior with your custom columns – Ivan Padabed Sep 15 '11 at 9:29
