Can you change the order of the columns in the Page Properties Report?

It's not clear to me how the headings/columns order themselves in the Page Properties Report.

For example if I create a table that says:



The Page Properties Report seems to sort these columns in random order (not alphabetical or by the order in which I create the table in the Page Properties macro. Is there a way to re-order the columns?

Hi Eugenie,

There is a Feature Request about it:

I believe there is no way to reorder them at the moment.


Probably a bit late (but maybe comes in handy for future visitors of this question wink) , but in the Report-macro, you can add in the option "Columns to show" the names of the columns themselves and in the order you want. 

This works well however, it breaks when the page properties macro is inserted from a template where there is instructional text in the column.

A work around for anybody who has this issue is to not use "columns to show"; by doing this, the page properties report will sort the column order alphabetically. You can simply add a numerical prefix to column name and it will sort in the order you wish. A bit ugly but it works.
