Manage Lots of Layouts?

I have lots of layouts in my current Filemaker Solution. There is no avoiding it. There are tons of printouts on a weekly basis and just lots of different aspects and functions of the company I am designing for. With that in mind, does anyone have any suggestions for managing the Layout: dropdown on the status bar? It is becoming overwhelmingly long. Thanks in advance.

Keep in mind some layouts can be excluded from the list. In layout mode go to Layouts>layout Set up and check or uncheck the box to display that layout.

We have quite a few layouts here that the user cannot even navigate to. But the layout is called in a script to print a specific form.

There are a few things that I do to manage layouts in my solutions:

- Create blank layouts named with only a hyphen, which will create a spacer line in the layout list. Put spacers between groups of layouts.

- Allow access to layouts via privilege set. If a user logs in with a priv set that doesn't have access to the layout, it will not show up in the layout menu.
