JIRA: Can the display of multiselect and checkbox field types be sorted?

Is there any way you know of to sort the display of values stored in a multiselect or checkbox field type? I have the list of checkboxes sorted already on the create and edit screens, but on the display screen, the values are showing up in no particular order.

From what I could tell, there is no way to sort this data, nor is it displayed in any intelligible order. The order in which the field values were originally added to the menu has no bearing. The order in which the values are selected has no bearing. Seems totally random.

I found your statements to be true as well. Its been several months since you asked this question. Did you ever find a solution that would display the values in the sorted order?

No solution. Still annoying ;)

Hi, I believe they are sorted based on how you've configured the custom field. The order appears in the order you have set the options.
