Not seeing a checkbox default to Checked in a screen

Attempting to follow the instructions below, I came up with the following configuration (seems like duplication to me), and when I select a transition that contains the field, the value Checked is not checked.

Instructions:

Hi @Phil Bustin , why are you using 2 different contexts?

The first one is global (all issue types, all projects)

The second one is restricted to the mentioned projects for all issue types

Default value and options are the same.

Do you have screenshot of your transition screen?

When you are viewing an issue, is the field displayed on your screen with value Checked?

What type is your field?

Hi @Phil Bustin , why are you using 2 different contexts?  Because I couldn't understand the instructions.

The first one is global (all issue types, all projects)

The second one is restricted to the mentioned projects for all issue types  I'll delete it.

Default value and options are the same.  What do you mean?

Do you have screenshot of your transition screen?  Below

When you are viewing an issue, is the field displayed on your screen with value Checked?  No.

What type is your field?  Checkbox

As a better solution, or possibly a workaround, I set an automation for the previous transition to set the default value to Checked.  Now, when the next transition is selected, the default value = Checked.

I will likely open a new question here, but in the transition in which the default checkbox value is Checked, when I click Unchecked, Checked remains checked.  That is not the behavior of a checkbox.
