      I am new to FileMaker, and am following a tutorial to create my first database.  I have used the Manage--Database option to create fields on my pages.  For one of the pages, the fields have all poplulated in the layout screen.  For the other two pages they have not populated.  I have gone back and verified that I have checked the "add newly defined fields to current layout" option in Preferences--layout.  Can anyone tell me what I am doing incorrectly?

          newly defined fields will only be placed on the layout you are currently viewing or if you create a new table, a new layout will be created for that table containing all the fields you have defined for that table.

          You can easily place the fields on the other layouts using the insert field dialog or selecting the field tool and drawing it where you want it on the layout.
