  2. Are any of these categories parent or child categories? It looks like some sections are in order (from "Construction Technologies" to "Transportation and Logistics" for example) but others are not. Can you post a screenshot of the drop down where you configured the category choices in the form builder?

  4. This has not been my experience. Have a look at this form:

    Here is a screenshot of my category drop down in the form builder:

    In both locations, the categories are in alphabetical order.

    Can you check for theme and plugin conflicts please

    Are you using any custom code that would affect the order of the categories?

    I am having the same problem. The categories are not listed in alphabetical order even though they are in alphabetical order with the category order plugin.
