I just noticed the Select Multiple People for Shared Events sorts only by Name and does not include the birth date in the sort criteria. Looking back I also notice this is not new to RM6 as RM5 behaved the same.

I am reporting this as an issue as Name > Birth Date is the standard sort criteria on other lists and it hinders my use of this feature greatly.

Why did you notice it for ONLY there?
The select people anywhere uses the standard RootsMagic Explorer setup, only the birth and death in the list with more in the right hand pane.

OH! I misunderstood you.

HMMMM, it looks like the other selects don't sort by birth date either.
I did a quick check to select for an individual list and the like names were not in order of date of birth either.

I didn't see it in the tracking system, so I added it.

See, Vyger? All you have to do is ask ... and then ye shall be sidestepped.
