Item11666: Looks like the defaulting of checkboxes in dataforms is broken (at least it is not doing what the docco says)
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.5
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
For checkboxes, radio buttons and dropdown lists: predefined input to select from. More advanced: this can be a dynamically generated list of values.
The field value will be used to initialize a field when a form is created, unless specific values are given by the topic template or query parameters. The first item in the list for a select or radio type is the default item. For label, text, and textarea fields the value may also contain commas. checkbox fields cannot be initialized through the form definition.
my test in 1.1.4 says that the field is not set for edit screen (visual) and when its saved, the field is not in the topic META at all.

this is being reverted for 1.1.6, as it has more impact on users than a patch release should.
and any resolution to this impact is greater than should be done for a patch release too.
