If you want users to be able to select an option from a drop-down list when they work with a template or a preset, you can define them in a template. Also, if you're using variables, you can present them as options in a drop-down in your template.
If you want to turn a text field into a drop-down with default content, contact Bynder Professional Services.

Open your template in https://YourPortalURL.com/settings/templates.
Open your drop-down block.
Do one of the following:
Use the default drop-down content with the values that have been specified in the INDD file. To do this select Default content in the Content source.
Use the content specified in Settings > Brand templates > Variable Management. To do this select Account variables in the Content source and select the variable you want to use. To learn more about creating variables, see Create variables.
Define your content for the drop-down. To do this select Custom content in the Content source and enter the options you want to have. Separate the options with a coma (and make sure you do not use a coma as a part of a value).
The names of your drop-down defined in the left-hand column that lists all template elements may differ from the names in the Content drop-down.
Defining drop-down content in presets is similar to defining content in templates. However, there are a few differences.
If you select Default content for a preset, the preset will inherit the values set in the template. So if the template has custom content defined, then selecting default content for a preset will inherit these template values.
If you select Account variable or Custom content for a preset, these settings will overwrite the custom content or account variables defined for the template.
You cannot lock drop-down as view-only. The only way to keep drop-downs in presets non-editable is to define only one value for the drop-down.
Drop-downs do not support character styles and text formatting.
