Find Return Order Default Change to LIFO

I posted this same question in 2011 with FM 11 and the answer was "change not possible" but I am hoping with the 3 upgrades that this may have changed.

 

When you perform a simple find for a field ( Ctrl F ), FM brings up the found set in order of creation ( I guess ). This appears to be the default result return order; FIFO.

 

Is there a way that you can change this standard default so that a simple find returns the most recent record created first order; LIFO?

 

I know that you can create a script based on a creation date field to do something like this, but I was wondering if it is possible to change the FM default find return order so that this happens all the time for every sort in every field.

 

Any help here would be greatly  appreciated.

 

I have FMPro Advanced 14.0.3

OS - Windows 7
