feature request #8045
Improve handling of default values and override in local preferences
For selection of default, dbPreference or explicit local value the local preference pages should have combo boxes.
Depending on his selection the local preference should be handled:
- default: save the default value
- db preference: delete the value in local preferences if exist
- exlicit value: save to preference file
ref #8045: show possible entries for preferences in combo boxes and show default value
ref #8045: show possible entries for preferences in combo boxes and show default value - continue
ref #8045: check whether all db preferences are deleted from DB if value is default value
ref #8045: further implementation for default/explicit value selection preference pages

I don't know if we really need "db preference" as explicit value. It makes it more difficult to understand and there is almost no added value (compared to "default". So we only need "default" and the list of explicit values. If "default" is chosen then the preference is deleted from the local preferences.

I would show the value of the db preference in the drop down, but with ("global") or ("db") behind
OK, if this is not an explicit entry but if it is only added to the anyway existing entry for this value. Maybe "recommended" is another possible label. A bit long but standard for many such cases.
