Can column order be retained?

Hi everyone. Can’t seem to find a way to retain column orders after moving them around? “Retain view” is checked in preference.

The order should be automatically retained. Which view did you actually try to customize?

Using standard layout and the columns in item list is the ones I want to change order. Want to move flag column from leftmost to 3 column.

The Flags column is a special case, this column can be only hidden currently.

Ah ha! Drove me crazy trying to figure what happened.
