Default Values on Site Columns Won't Appear in Page Layout

I set up a content type with some site columns that had default values. When I made a page layout using this content type, the problem was that the default value wasn't appearing.
Apparently, there is a bug in SharePoint - the default value or calculated value won't appear until the content type is made the default in the pages library.
To make the content type the default in the Pages library: Go to the Pages library, click on Settings, Document Library Settings, Change new button order and default content type.
