Preview version 1891 seems to have broken register date sorting

As per the title. I updated. My register was in date descending. I clicked on date to change to ascending which happened but now date sorting seems frozen. Neither clicking on the date header or via the right click menu will change date sorting back to descending. This is true for all my registers.
Help please!

    Hi Ian,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Can you let me know which operating system you're running on your computer/s?

    Is there any particular reason why you are running the preview version instead of the latest stable Moneydance 2019.3 (1880)?

    Did you try uninstalling and re-installing it already?

    Hi Maddy

    A number of Windows 10 and Mac users have reported this issue when using preview build 1891 on Sean’s Slack site.

    Also Sort By Date/Amount no longer seems to work in 1891.

    Hi Maddy
    I'm running Win 10 fully updated.
    I'm running the preview version because I like new things & I have absolutely no patience.
    I haven't tried uninstalling/reinstalling & in the light of Derek's info it probably wouldn't help to do so.
    My registers seem to be locked on to 'sort by date/amount'. At least that's what's immovably selected in the rightclick/sort selector.

    This is the response by Sean on this subject.

    "thanks for the feedback re sort order and Amex connection problems in 1891! I believe I've just fixed both and will have build 1892 available in a few hours."

    Sounds good.

    Sean has fixed Amex issue as well as register heading arrows toggling to change between Ascending and Descending. BUT right click Sort By Date/Amount is still not working. Works in 1888.

    I've noticed some occasional odd sorting by date in 1892: It looks like that items with a blank C column (= Uncleared) are pushed to the top above Reconciling/Cleared ones, regardless of their date. I haven't had time yet to come up with a standalone example to proof and show this, but maybe that hint is enough for support and developer team to follow up.
