enter image description hereI am designing a form. One of the parameters can have multiple choices, and they need to display those choices, after they've been selected.

I used the lozenges pattern, as shown in the visuals. Note: last visual, "display" shows how the selections appear, in resting state.

Are there any alternatives to lozenges?

Maximum would be 20 chosen accounts.

This can be called multi-select from a dropdown list. The chosen items could also function as a filter in some use cases.

An alternative to lozenges is to show the items in a list under the dropdown menu, with a remove action.

Another could be to have a different visual treatment of the lozenges as shown below.

Step 1: Step 1 of multi select dropdown Step 2: Step 2 of multi select dropdown
