Renaming fields in duplicated layouts to match table

I have several layouts that have to be exactly the same, with the same fields but from different occurrences of a table.

To hasten the creation, I simply duplicated them all.


Unfortunately, when you do that you don't have the option to have the fields reassociated automatically with the new table occurence. I haven't found  a way to do that "en masse". Just the specify field command in the contextual menu that doesn't even have a keyboard shortcut, and you have to scroll up in the select table dropdown instead of jumping directly to the current table. That's millions of mouse clicks and scroll, with the latency of the VPN, I am not a happy camper.


Is there a way by script to do this to get the field in context (basically remove the  myoldtable::)?


Well I am done doing it manually, however, if there is a way, this is something that happens often so I would like to know.
