What is the Default Value Macro?

The Default Value Macro allows the author of a template to have a default value assigned automatically to a placeholder. When doing so, the field for the respective placeholder in the Placeholder Replacement Dialog is prefilled with the value in the macro, but can, if you want to, still be modified.

ATTENTION

Note: The Default Value Macro has to be put where the Page Tree Creator is invoked to copy a page in order for it to have any effect. For example on the page with the PTC Button

New Feature

With version 8.x the Default Value Macro can also be put on an ancestor pages
