There is a easy way (for Apple Mac at least) to copy and paste all the
information of one lay-out of one record:
choose the record and layout in question; then copy WITHOUT selecting a
field.  All the information can then be pasted  any where

It is very  advisable  to spread out the information  over  a large number
of fields to enable efficient use of the 'find mode' (rather than lumping
information in the same field)
