Moving/Rearranging Calculated Columns
I'd like to be able to move/rearrange my Calculated Columns in the Data View so they can be placed next to columns where they would be more relevant and make more sense.
It would be nice also if the Calculated Columns are shaded darker as in PowerPivot so we can easily distinguish them.
Also please enable Ctrl+A (Select ALL) in the Data View - currently it works only in the Query Editor.
This way we could Select ALL Data in the Data View where it would include the Calculated Columns.

+1 very interesting idea

For me its very important this, once I need to compare date of different tables.
Wyn Hopkins commented
This is really important.
Also if you add a DAX calc column and then go back to Power Query and add another column there there's no way of seeing which columns are which in the data view. And they are all mixed up.
Please enable the Rearranging of all columns (even non calculated ones).
Please don't limit this to just calculated columns; enable rearranging ALL columns, as this would GREATLY simplify structuring tables!!!

Powerbi is hell of a problem... Why can't we swap columns in the data view.. The union is messing all the data..
Rolf Bremer commented
This request does make sense mainly for tables with large number of columns and many calculated columns.
Is it so complex to enable a similar drag & drop feature as available in the Query Editor ?
no update? It's 2019!

This must be an easy one to implement, would be so useful when viewing the raw data. Especially as filtering was added to the Data View.
This would ease training and handover of PowerBI developments. Wide spreading the use of the application in an easier manner to the users
It would be great if calculated column and measures is in bold,Italic and different colors.

Gah - so annoying!
In my opinion this change is absolutely crucial. The issue has been open since 2015 and no change has been implemented, please listen to us Power BI team!
Please, please Power BI team... make our data organisation dreams come true. It is so frustrating when we have a perfectly formed table, edit the name of a field and suddenly the key is on the right. My brain cannot cope with this. Please help.
Looking forward for this function.
