    FYI: FM13 has changed the default sorting of value lists

      Heads up:

       

      Our users have found that value lists that formerly ignored pre-pended characters for sorting, now respect them. For instance:

       

      In FileMaker 12, values that were pre-pended with an asterisk were displayed in Alpha-numeric order by default — and the pre-pended asterisk was ignored:

      Now, in FileMaker 13, these characters are included in the default sort order, so all of the pre-pended values are now together at the top of the list:

      If anyone has suggestions on how I can restore the previous behavior (short of reverting back to FileMaker 12!), I'm all "ears".

       

      Thanks in advance,
