Using Sitecore 9.0.2, I'm looking to globally enable field-level language fallback. This seems like it should be easy to do, just go to the Field template and check on the box in the standard values. However, this doesn't appear to work properly.
I found this article from 2016 about the issue, and Sitecore suggested it was a bug and provided a patch: https://learnsitecorebasics.wordpress.com/tag/field-level-fallback/. But it seems like this is still present today and was never patched in.
Before I either get Sitecore to send me the v9 equivalent patch, or patch it myself in a similar style using dotPeek to find what needs fixing where, I wanted to check the community to see if others have this issue and there's a better way, beyond manually setting the checkbox on every field.
