Hide Layouts for certain users but allow changes to the table

Post

     I have numerous layouts tied to tables that are embedded in one main layout.  I have a large number of users who should not have access to the information in some of the tables and who I do not want going into different layouts from the menu.  However, I want them to have access to add and modify records from the layout, as they occur in portals throughout the main layout.  Therefore, I wish to simply hide all but one layout from the menu.

     I have gone to the security settings and tried to set custom settings for layouts.  However, if I set a layout to "No Access" then there is automatically "No Access" to add records, even when viewed through a portal.  (We have portals set up where one can click a button to create a new portal record.)  I can simply manage the layouts and hide all but one from view, but then administrators would not be able to see those layouts.

     Is there a way to hide layouts for certain users (i.e. not admin users) but still enable those tables to have records created and modified?
