Current behavior

When you create a Single Content schema and added a field with default value it doesnt show the default value in the content page.

Expected behavior

Default Value should be set in the content for the single content schema

Minimal reproduction of the problem

Create a single content schema, add a text field and set a default value and publish it. Open the content page and navigate to the content.

The singleton content is created when the schema is created. Therefore default values cannot work and it is designed like that.

In general a default value is applied when a content is created.

I see thanks for the reply sebastian.
