How would you know if 111 means 11 feet and 1 inch or 1 foot and 11 inches?
You can only do it if the value has to be 4 numbers, for example, or if you artificially cap the maximum (and minimum) values, by assuming the value can't be lower than X or higher than Y. Either way, it's tricky.

So would it be best to use: Ft: 06 | In. 06 = 0606? Could it be done then? Chances of a 10 foot person or 1 foot person completing this are very slim, but I am okay with it being a four number format.

It is possible to do it so that if there are 3 digits it assumes the first one is feet and the last two are inches, and if there are are two it's one for each, I guess.

But do you want it converted in the same field, or to show the multi-line value in a different field?

Happy Friday,

I would like it to convert into the multi line value format in the same field, if possible.

You can use this code as the field's custom Format script:

if (event.value) event.value = "Ft " + event.value.charAt(0) + "\nIn, " + event.value.substring(1);
