Make sure that you have converted the layout file using 'Convert Act! 3.0 - 6.0 Items' from Tools.

 

If you have done that, is there something that is non-standard to the way that you customized the file?

 

Barring that, it may be corrupted.

 

Worst case, create a new layout file in Act! 10, it's not to hard.

I converted my 6.0 Layout but I can not find where the converted Layout is in ACT 10 now nor can I find the menu or drop down for changing the default layout.  I've been hunting for it for a while.   Nothing.  Help !

When the layout is converted (Tools > Convert Act! 3-6 Items) it places a copy of the converted layout into the 'databasename-database files\Layouts' folder.  To access the layout:

- in Act 2008 (V10) on the Contact Detail screen - layouts are accessed using the Layout button in the bottom left hand corner of the program.  Click on the Layout button and select the appropriate layout.

- in Act 2010 (V12) on the Contact Detail screen - layouts are accessed using the Layout field located just above the contact detail area (on the Detail View/List View toolbar to the far right).
