User report issues when attempting to change the position of some report objects in BI Publisher reports.

For example when using Edit mode and selecting the 'View a list' display to move and reorder columns to different positions, the changes do not save successfully for the Report module.

After making the changes, when users select the 'View Thumbnails' or 'View Report' the original object order is displayed.

Also the reorder arrows do not work as expected for all rows.


Users are requesting the reorder changes should save successfully, and the Reorder arrows should work for all rows

The issue can be reproduced via the following Navigation Path:
1. Go to url -
2. Find report with multiple layouts
3. Click edit report
4. Click 'View a list'


 Users selected the 'View a list' display option to move and reorder columns to different positions.
