Hi Viraj,


Yes, you can change layout later also.

The page in which you add the custom fields in "Common" object.When you scroll down on that page, you will see PageLayout section.

On clicking on Edit you can change the layout.


Hope this will help you!

I mean here ..

I have an object contact person which can refer to other custom objects. So in contact person object i have a lookup of other objects. So when i marked parent object (parent object 1 ) as look up,it asked for pagelayout to choose. Curently i have selected default layout whiel creating field. 

Now i have to change default layout to my custom layout. I created my custom layout. but now i have use this layout for parent object 1. I went to edit of parent object1  field to change the layout but option was not available.

Can  you please suggest how to handle this

As per my understanding, you have created a new page layout.

All the page layouts are available at one place for 1 object.


For more information can you please share the screen shots how you are doing?
