I've encountered a very weird behavior when editing any field on an Item(new or old) in a custom list where this specific dropdown field's text value changes from "Temporary" to "Permanent".
As a background we've added this field a year ago and just moved the position of this field by manually cutting and pasting on the first portion of the NewForm and EditForm.
I've already checked that there are no workflows that automatically start when an item is edited because they are configured to be manually started.
Could this be a content type issue? Not sure why it automatically changes value as soon as I press save in the Edit Form. I would like to experiment in deleting the portion below from the EditForm, but i'm concerned if I delete this in the EditForm will I lose any data?
Admittedly, I don't have much knowledge about SP :(
