What do you mean by "the import function is key"? Are you trying to import data changes into P&ID via Report Creator, or something to that effect?
I can relate...I'm personally still waiting for the capability of mass changes to be imported into the database without having to open up each individual drawing as well. In the meantime, we've been using Data Manager in conjunction with calculated fields from Report Creator to find and update necessary data. Hopefully as time goes on, access to the data will increase to this degree. It would definitely save us a lot of time and man-hours.
I am also having this same issue. It appears that it is only with the line summary list. I have noticed a few things.
1. Like everyone else that has posted, I cannot get the order of the properties in the order I'd like under the Reports node of the project setup.
2. If you dig down to the P&ID class definitions node, on my end the properties are in the same order as in the report node.
3. the LineSummaryList.xml file seems to have been modified. When I go to the default out of the box project and compare it to the LineSummaryList.xml file of the latest project that we have been working on, the groupby and orderby are swapped and a new line named DerivedProperties appears.

I'm still trying to figure out if the PnIDPart.xml file has anything to do with it. I have noticed that on the default out of the box project the line list summary is true but in the new LineListSummary.xml it is set to false.
I am also having issued with some of the Info blocks. Now it appears that when we edit the infotags for equipment, we have to enter the data twice. I go into project setup and dig down to the PnID Class Definitions and modify the block for the said equipment and there are duplicate queries stacked on each other. I erase the duplicates and when I go back to the drawing, it only ask for the information one time. Not sure if this is related.
