This used to be possible by right-clicking column headings in the attribute table, then using the menu that appeared to produce a checklist of fields that could be unticked & re-arranged.

I've updated to 2.14.22 and the right-click functionality has vanished! Searched everywhere I can think of, can't find these settings or any clues in changelogs.

I'm sure I'm missing something here, can someone help me out?

  • Have you been using QGIS 2.16 or 2.18 previously? – Kazuhito Feb 21 '18 at 11:19
  • I can't say for 2.14 but in 2.18.14 the right-click still permit to access the reorder menu – J.R Feb 21 '18 at 11:49
  • Hi Kazuhito, I was on 2.14 previously – Rob Feb 21 '18 at 12:32
  • As @J.R commented, I was thinking of functionality 2.16+.... it's interesting it was working in previous 2.14 version. – Kazuhito Feb 21 '18 at 12:46

    UPDATE fixed this problem by updating QGIS to 2.18.16. Could not find a solution in 2.14 (there is a work-around by changing the "Edit widget" property to "Hidden" in the Fields section of Layer Properties, then re-opening the attribute table, but it takes too long with lots of fields). Thanks JR for the suggestion. – Rob Feb 21 '18 at 13:40
