Drop-down list displays limited values

Since converting to v12, we have found many drop-down lists only display a portion of the values in the Value List.

At the end is a "...' which if you click on, displays the full list. We also suspect the auto-complete only draws from the displayed set.


Some of our users are getting confused by this, so it would be nice to have the option to switch it off, where performance is not affected.


I asked FMI about it, and they were unable to replicate the issue, so it must only happen under certain conditions.


Where we see it is a related field in a portal, with the Value List being simply a field in another table. The files are being served by FMS.


Does anyone know when this feature becomes active, and if it can be altered?


Also, we found that when the Value List is sorted by a second field, the drop-down list doesn't work at all.
