Meaning of the "Location" in the customization page


The subject is a bit cheeky as I am pretty sure I understand what it means; but I am a bit confused on how it’s applied.

For instance, in the Result Fields, there is left and right for the Location. The Right side has Version, Elapsed and Defects (and possibly a custom one). The Left have two custom fields (Step Results, and a Logfile).

But if I go to a Result; this is opposite. The Version, Elapsed and Defects are on the left side, while teh two custom fields are on the right.

Hence my confusion.
