Stop auto-ordering of categorical columns

I'm aware that we can use the "value" ordering option to sort a categorical variable into a preferred order for data visualizations. However, this is tedious when you have a lot of rows -- is there a way to tell JMP not to order the categorical variables and to leave them the order that they appear in the JMP table? I am using JMP 15.

Yes, use the "Row Order Level" column property

Re: Stop auto-ordering of categorical columns

Got it, thanks! Having to ensure the "Custom Order" box is unchecked was something I was missing as well.
