We have a schema that includes an optional multivalue embedded field. The schema for this embedded field has 3 optional single text fields, 2 mandatory single text fields and 1 mandatory dropdown select field.
The problem we encounter is that whenever you create a new component based on this schema, you HAVE to fill in all the mandatory fields in the embedded fields in this component, even though the embedded field itself is optional. The cause of this seems to be the mandatory dropdown field that is prefilled by Tridion.
It seems the only workaround is to make the embedded dropdown select field optional.
Is there any other way to solve this?
