And here is what happens when I try to include a monospace tag:

Since you might not see it here, the text I inputed is


This works FINE for regular TMP objects, which the other 3 are (and are using). I am trying to implement dropdown (and left, and up, and right) menus.

This has nothing to do with the tag that you are using.

For dropdown fields, the text of the label is overwritten by the dropdown component based on the selected option. In order to set the text of that label, you should go to the dropdown component and set the text of the selected option (Option A) like so:


Or unlink the Label from the dropdown component, but it is likely that you want it to be linked sinse you are using the DropDown component for a reason I suppose.
