Pro 2.9, I am trying to change the order and visibility of fields.
I have successfully changed length but whenever open a new instance of the layer 'Visible' and the field order are reverted to the default.

These properties are linked to the layer.

You should think about saving the layer as a layer file. Add the saved layer file instead of the feature class next time.

Could you try changing the field order and visibility from the catalog window or catalog pane instead of the table of contents.

  • The catalog window/pane deals with feature classes in a geodatabase,which is stored in the data source.
  • The table of content deals with layers, whose configurations/modifications are only stored in that particular map. Hence, the "resetting" behavior when the same feature class is added to a new map.

Best regards,
