I have a site page with two related lists, this relation being established via the webpart option "insert related list", and I'm using ID column in my child list as the lookup column.

The child list is properly being filtered when I select some of the items in the parent list, but when adding new items, I need to manually associate the correct parent id I want the child item to be linked with, even if a parent list item is previously selected in its respective webpart.

I searched around, but no clues yet. Not sure whether I was clear enough, but any help will be appreciated.
