This functionality was removed from the GEMS, and the documentation
hasn't yet been updated. However you can achieve the same effect by
editing the .mds file manually (in a text editor), and adding <Value>
tags for the preset values. For example:

<Element name="Organization" predefined="true">
<Attribute name="comment" language="en"></Attribute>
<Attribute name="definition" language="en">The organization
responsible for producing this resource.</Attribute>
<Attribute name="identifier" language="en">Organization</Attribute>
<Attribute name="version">1.0</Attribute>
<Value>Uni of Waikato</Value>

You also need to set predefined="true" in the Element tag (and
restricted="true" if you don't want the GLI user to be able to assign
values that aren't specified).
