Sorting Domains for Collector

I have just started exploring Collector and am impressed by it???s potential.

My biggest frustration, however, is dealing with domains. Specifically, keeping them sorted.  The default seems to be an alpha sort on the description.  It is possible to get them sorted by codes instead by using the "Sort Coded Value Domain" tool in Data Management.  This usually gets the drop-down lists in Collector to display in the intended order.

I have yet to find a way to present a sorted list when the domain is used as to set the symbol (feature type) for a feature class.  Specifically, when you go to collect a new feature, Collector gives you an unsorted list (not in alpha or code order) for the feature type.  It appears that this list gets resorted each time the map is reloaded or Collector is restarted.  It also appears that some items in the domain aren???t displayed or may be hold-overs from previous versions of the map.  The only work around I???ve come up with is to select any feature type and then correct it with the drop-down.

Any suggestions with sorting domains?

I am using 10.2.3 for Android.
