You could put a tab object on the layout and split the fields up over 2 or more tabs. The layout would have all of the fields and display one screen of them at a time. User changes tabs to see the next batch of fields. This would keep everything on one layout but make it manageable.
thanks . I have that already, what in need is the fields that are to the right of the 8 1/2 page margin to be printable. A older version I used before allowed you to set layouts printing area and you could have pages side by side up to 4 pages and 10 pages down. version 10 only allows 10 pages down. no pages ( printing) to the right of the frist page.

I think I'm missing something here. It sounds like you have two issues. One where you need to lock a record with a lot of fields. So that only an admin can access it. This can be done using the buily in security. Chack out Privledge sets.
The second is printing this record (or records?). Which is longer then 10 pages.. Possibly you can break the fields up in to groups, save the groups to a pdf and append each group/layout to the PDF. When done have the system open the PDF and the user can print it.
