I have the idea for a multiple select list in redmine. So I can setup a multiple list as a custom field for projects, for example "operating system". When i create the project, i can select only Linux or with CTRL-Click multiple entrys like "Linux", "Windows", "Android". This would be great, something i am missing in redmine.

+1 for multiple select list on custom fields

Maybe the actual list could behave both ways, and if we like to select more than one option just click the "+" button like in the issue filter section.

The problem is when selecting multiple filter options the behavior should be "At least (selected) :" don't know if it's the desirable behavior.

+1 for multiple select list in custom fields. Or maybe even better (or both:) multiple checkboxes.

+1 ...but I think the ideal interface for this would be similar to the watchers list at the bottom of the issues. It is very clean and elegant that way and would allow long enumerations of values without cluttering the screen.

+1 I also agree with this idea. I was thinking about a different interface like filters in the issues list.

For example a combo box with a "+"
When you clic on the "+", you ad another combobox...

But finally, the idea of the list of checkboxes would be nice, unlike you use a huge list of values...
