I created a database with a specific layout and saved it. When I open a different database and wish to use the same layout it does not appear as an option. How do I get the new database to utilize the already customized layout?

Your database will have a Layouts folder in the "<dbname>-database files" folder. Copy your layout into that folder (for the other database) and you should then see it in your drop-down list.

Note: If you created new fields in the original database and added them to the layout, those fields will not be accessible in the new database when the layout is copied (unless you created them in the new database also).

I am not sure what the problem is. I go to Tools, then Design Layout. I complete an extensive design, save it as a .cly file and close. It does not show up as a layout anywhere, and the only way I can find it is by going back into design layouts and it shows up as a layout there. But is otherwise unavailable.
