On an old workstation (Windows XP with ArcMap 10.1), whenever I added a tool to a model which listed the field map where I could rename or map fields when outputting to a new feature class, I recall I was able to hit the up/down arrows to move the selected field up and down. That way, I could control the field position of the output feature class.
However, on my new workstation (Windows 7 with ArcMap 10.1 with several 3rd party components installed), this function no longer appears to work. I cannot move the fields around via the up/down arrows nor can I drag/drop the fields to the position I want.
This is a nit-picky thing, but I'd like to control the fields from left to right a certain way in my output feature classes.
See attached screenshot for an example.
EDIT: Also added PatchFinder output for updates/patches which were applied to workstation. FWIW.

I always use ET geowizards, and ArcGIS add-in, to reorder fields. It has a lot of other cool functions as well, and many of them have unlimites use even in the free version: ArcGIS tools add-ons and extensions from ET SpatialTechniques
