Is it possible to delete hidden columns? I think this might be useful in creating smaller Datawarrior files which could be a subset of a much larger file.

Also, is it possible to set the order in which columns are displayed? I know you can click and drag column headers to rearrange the columns but it would be nice to save the order or run a macro that would keep the order the same.

Dear Ed,

thank you for the question. I just added "Delete Hidden Columns" as task to the table header popup menu.

The second question needs a little more work. Unfortunately, you are right, that changing the columns order does not trigger a task doing the change. Instead it is just done on the fly not using the task architecture. For this reason it would not be recorded as part of a macro and there is also no way to change the column order within a manually constructed macro. I will put the necessary changes on the TODO list.
