Default values for Custom Type List of Values

Hi,

I'm creating a custom type property that is a list of values.  When that Type is applied to a document, I want the list to have no default value, user must choose a value.

In the Create Property window, if I leave Default value empty, it populates the listbox when active with the first value in the list.

If I choose to set a default value, it has to be something in the list of values.

Is there a way around this?  I don't want a value to be already populated, users will not be aware that they have to choose something if something is already chosen.

Thanks!
