when you create a document in a SP 2010 document library (of a particular content type, by clicking new, letter (content type name) in sharepoint for example) which has default values set on in in the library (set by using library settings -> change
default column values), the default values do not show up until you create the document , save it and reopen it again. Is this a bug or by design. If it is by design, it is horrible since if some of the column default values are mandatory in the
content type then you actually have to type them in before you could possibly save the file which defeats the whole point of having default column values. Also it is tremendously clunky for a user to have to create file, save it , close it, and reopen
it just to view the default metadata in the document information panel that is supposed to be there.
Anyone have any thoughts/solutions to this problem?
