In OpenPlant Modeler, while placing components if software encounters more than one entry in spec based on the criteria defined for query in standard preferences it shows below dialog where user can select the required component.
Now if user changes the order of columns as per his requirement and close the modeler and re-launch it. The order of the columns will again revert back to the original order. It happens because the order of the columns is defined in the schemas and it doesn't override the changes done by user in last modeling session. This article will explain how and where the order of the properties can be set.
NOTE: If you see different result from what is defined in the schema, then you will need to delete the highlighted folder (Name of project) from C:\Users\%USER_NAME%\AppData\Roaming\Bentley\OpenPlantModeler\8.11
Once OpenPlant Modeler is opened with the same project, this folder will be created once again.

This procedure should be modified to show how to add a property to the spec grid that currently isn't in the list. Search for property, add a Property Display Status custom attribute...
