Some of the information is here:

Find your installed copy of Column_View.xsl and copy it into your local
folder ($HOME/.local/share/tellico/report-templates/). Rename it and edit
line 39. Instead of
<xsl:variable name="columns" select="str:tokenize($column-names)"/>
Change it to
<xsl:variable name="columns" select="year cover plot"/>
Make sure to change '*plot*' to whatever the field name of your Summarize
field is.

Hopefully that works out for you.
