I've been looking for other words to describe a pre-selected option that can be changed by the user but must have a value. Everyone uses the word "default" to describe that, but in searching for synonyms I always get a list of synonyms related to the legal definition--a failure to meet an obligation.
I don't like the word default because computer people use it everywhere. Are there any good single word alternatives?
Commonly available references are deficient on the subject.
