    Is there a way to have a radio button selected by default (pre-selected) in a form that has two buttons?

    Thank you.

    What I meant is that when the form loads I would like to have one of the two radio buttons on the form selected instead of having both of them unselected.

    Does it make sense?

    To select a radio button option by default, simply click on your radio button field then click the Selected button found at the toolbar.


    Choose the option you want to be selected by default, then save your form.

    Hope you find this useful.
