Need to be able to define default value for an Attribute when legacy object is edited

Need to be able to define default value for an Attribute when legacy object is edited

Windchill 10.1 M050.

On introducing a new mandatory attribute (IBA) with a default value, legacy objects do not display this default value when they are edited.

The default value only displays on the Create page layout.

For example:-

New WTDocument String Attribute 'Retention' has a 'Required' constraint, it also has a Default value of 'Project End of Service date plus 7 years'.

When a new document is created the 'Retention' default value is displayed, however when a legacy document is edited the 'Retention' attribute string is displayed as blank.
