function wpf_dev_field_new_default( $field ) {

	// default scheme set to international
	if ($field['type'] === 'address') {

		$field['scheme_selected'] = 'international';

		$field['scheme'] = 'international';

		$field['country_hide'] = 'wpforms-hide';


// Return
return $field;


add_filter( 'wpforms_field_new_default', 'wpf_dev_field_new_default', 10, 1 );
