Is there a way to change the column order after I've created my filter? Yes.  When a filter is first created, the column order of the specimen list is dependant upon the order in which the items were added to the filter.  To change this order later on, you can simply click and drag the column header of the specimen list. The ordering of columns will be retained and restored the next time you use the filter.
Use a “mouse-drag” operation to reorder columns. Position the mouse over the center of the column to be repositioned, press down on the mouse, move the entire column left or right, and release the mouse.
Here's what it looks like after the mouse-drag is completed.
