How to make dafault values to show and how do I make calculations to work on iPad?

Post

     Hello!

     I’m having 2 problems I don’t know how to solve.
     I'm using FileMaker 12 PRO.

         
  1.           I created a layout that picks fields from another table and these fields have a default value specified (red selection on screen dump).
              But when I create a new post these values are not shown.
              If I enter a value in another field (blue selection on screen dump) that is also picked from the other table but does not contain any default values, the default values in the other field pops up.

     How do I make the default values to be shown upon creating a new post, without entering data in another field first?

         
  1.           I have one layout with a bunch of calculations.
              It works fine when using it on a computer but with the iPad it does not always perform the calculations. I need to click on another field to make the calculations to work. Just leaving the field which I just enter data in is not enough. Is there any script I could use to make the layout perform all calculations required?

     Thank you!
