Problem Sorting Repeating Group By Option Sets vs Hard Coded Numbers

I am trying to sort a repeating group with a search.

I have two fields in the “Thing”, called [Benchmarks].

One is $Order and the other is ::Order::

[Bracket] = a Thing
$field = Input or hard value field
::Option:: = Option set…

…basically a notation system for me to visually see in the editor what type of Thing or Entry I am dealing with.

So $Order, I have manually put 1 through 5 in the backend database, while ::Order:: I have created an Option Set with 1-10 as Display, and 1-10 as Attributes As a Number.

I want to order a repeating group using the Option Set… (Why? seems easier to not screw it up later… but I could be wrong about that).

However, ::Order:: is not showing up in the “Sort By” dropdown.

Only $Order

Any reason why?
