Yes, I second it. My users are screaming too. There's no workaround and being able to turn off the auto-sort would be a much needed feature in the next version of Filemaker.
Thank you for your posts.
A number of users have been upset with this change. I would encourage all of you to submit this change to our Feature Suggestion web form at:
I know I could easily copy your posts and paste them into the web form, but there are additional questions asked that only you can answer.
When entering the suggestion, please just don't say, "Please turn this feature off". Explain why this is bothersome. How it affects you and your users. The people who read these "Feature Suggestions" (Development and Product Management) tend to pay more attention to those entries that have real-life examples/experiences.
