Setting the default value for single select column type

Currently, setting the default value for a single-select column type can be achieved either when creating the column type, or by customising the column type after it has been created.

Feature request:
Implement a feature whereby the user can set the default value for the single-select column type in the ‘Edit single select’ pop-up.
More specifically, once the select options have been created, or when creating the options, there could be a checkbox (or another graphical widget) that appears next to the delete icon – which appears when the user hovers over an option – allowing the user to set one of the options as the default value.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

If I understand your request correctly, you suggest a change in the UI’s design, not a new feature, correct?

The way I see it, there are 2 options:

  1. Change the existing UI design and add an option to set the default value in the ‘Edit single select’ pop-up; or
  2. Keep the existing UI design and add the option I’m suggesting

Personally, I’d go for option 1.

OK, got it. Thanks for the details.

I’ll add it to the list, but don’t get your hopes up. You are asking for the redesign of a menu item that has been around since version 1.0.

Thanks, Ralf.
This is more of a ‘I wish I could…’ thing. I won’t lose any sleep over it.

Is that problematic?
