I have a simple list in SharePoint with few different types of columns. When I double click on the item, it opens on the right with more information about it.

When I click on a value in the "Title" field or in the "number" field and enter a new value, the value in the "test option choose" column/field also changes to blank by itself and is automatically saved. That "test option choose"column is set to be a choice column and it has a default value set so I don't know why it changing by itself to blank.

I don't know how it happening and why, but I would like to stop it. Can you help me, please?

 

Thank you for help in advance.
