The Smart Fill feature works by entering the field name (the name="" attribute of the form field) and the URL of the page where it's stored. Then, the script attempts to parse the page and extract the list of field options.
Generally speaking, if you supplied the correct form field name, this should work fine. But in case it cannot locate the field, you might want to try "hacking it" by copying and pasting the field into a blank webpage and linking that that instead. This can at least help identify where the problem lies.
Form Tools 2.1.x introduced a new option where you can group similar options, e.g. you could have a single Option List split into two groups: "Canadian Provinces" and "US States".
How the grouped Option Lists get displayed depends on the field type it's being used in. For example, a dropdown list would just group them visually in optgroups; radios and checkboxes display them with a heading above each group.
