There are many content types and part configs with SingleSelectors that are required and should have a default value. As it is now, we have to click and pick an option every time and it gets tiresome. I know this is more a matter of convenience than a requirement, but I hope it’s on the list of features.
Default value would be awesome! Totally agree! So some value must be selected but you help the user by pre-selecting the default one.
Side note: on radio buttons and checkboxes it would be nice to add
<checked>true</checked> to have it selected/checked from the start.
For your information - Singleselector is planned to be replaced by “Dropdown” and “Radiobuttons” input types in the upcoming 6.0. I’ll look into the default value part too
