auto sort



Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8

Description of the issue

I cannot work with this new (PRO11) with its auto sort feature.  I have had to go back to my (old PRO 03) which does not have auto sort.
As for this (PRO11). If I have sorted a certain field, lets call it "Notes" it will remain in this sort routine and move my records around as I edit them with such unintentional consequences and it is time consuming to get it back in the sort order I want. It will not do to simply choose unsort.  I've added a field with a correspondingly location along side my target field and number these records as I need to,,, 1 2 3 4 5 etc. Then I sort on that new field, and now I can go back to my initial field and work without it moving all over the place.  But that is not always fool proof, but it is a pain.
  I had waited long before I upgraded to the PRO11 for you mew I MAC.  Now I wish I hadn't upgraded.  Is there a fix to turn off the (auto sort?) until then I'll be on the ( old 03 )
