There are two spreadsheets with columns being grouped.
In the first the grouping looks pretty standard - note that the +/- control is on the left of grouped columns:

first spreadsheet

And in the second - I accidentally made the +/- control appearing on the right: second spreadsheet

I don't realize the repro steps for the second variant. What happened and how can I undo that?

Right click on the line and choose "move button to the left" (or to the right).


If you have no grouped columns yet and are trying to group Column A, first create a temporary group of other columns that aren't at the left of the sheet.

Then right-click the [-] button and choose "Move +/- button to the right".

Then you can create your group of Column A and then delete your temporary column group elsewhere.
