Aliases should be enterable in a new-line-separated list in a multi-line box form field
If I have a list of IP addresses I want to use in an alias, the obvious way to enter them is with the URL or URL Table types, and fetch a text file, but that has some unresolved bugs:
However, I have discovered accidentally that it is possible to copy and paste the list of IP address from my text file, with 1 IP on each line, into a single field of the "Host" type, and it will be automatically expanded to multiple individual fields for each IP after the page is saved. I propose that the "Host" type should be a multi-line box form field, so it's more clear that it is possible to enter IP's that way. Alternatively, another type should be created that can accommodate a text list input in as standard that is easy to compose in a text editor, and then pfSense can parse it to pull out the IP's, description, etc.
