An observation / comment rather than a bug …
The ‘default value’ field option (seems to) work during output … so if no other value has been assigned, the field uses the default for outputted data.
That initially confused me – I thought it was a ‘default’ value for INPUTTING data … so if you didn’t specify something else, this would be the value. As it is currently set up, if you want a ‘blank’ field, you can’t have a default value, even if ninety nine times out of a hundred you want “x” to be the value. If you specify ” for the hundredth, it’ll see the blank field and output ‘x’ if that’s what you’ve set as a default.
Would be handy for this to be an input option rather than an output one, or have an additional ‘input’ default.
