Unicode Value List Sorting broken in 12v3

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12v3

Description of the issue

When choosing unicode as the re-sorting option in a field based value list it will not work. It defaults to natural record order.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a table based value list with arbitrary field data that isn't in unicode sorted order when viewing the records in an unsorted state.

e.g.:

dog
cow
banana

Select unicode as the sorting option.

Expected result

Value list should re-sort by unicode, not reflecting the natural order.

banana
cow
dog

Actual result

Value list in the following order:

dog
cow
banana

Configuration information

This bug was introduced in FMP 12v3. The expected behavior works in FMP 12v2 and earlier.
