Permanently Re-arrange Fields in ArcGIS Pro

Idea created by zieglerhm_CDMSmith on Aug 1, 2017

    I've noticed that I can re-arrange fields in the Fields View of ArcGIS Pro, but that this order is not permanent, and only applies to the layer in the table of contents.


    Side story: I often need to re-arrange the order of fields permanently, but the only way I currently know how is to create a personal geodatabase in ArcMap, import the featureclass into it, change the field order in Access using design view, and then exporting the edited featureclass back to the original geodatabase and deleting the old copy. It's quite tedious for such a simple task..


    Would it not be simple to have functionality to permanently re-arrange fields built into the ArcGIS Pro field view?


    I hope this gets support! Thank you.
