"Populate" is a fairly common term in the software development
world. You can populate a data base or populate an array, to
name a few examples. However, even though *I* am perfectly
comfortable with it, I don't think I would use it in user
documentation. The average user will "fill in" empty fields and
some fields contain "default values." ("Default values" may be
verging on jargon to some.)
