Since EagleData is a Mac program there should be no manual necessary, as mac-users don't read manuals anyway. For those of you who can't live without one, here is a short reference:

A layout is a specific view at your data. You can have many different layouts for a database.
E.g. if you have an address database you can have a "phonebook" layout where only the names and phonenumbers are shown in addition to the standard layout.
You can easily switch between layouts using the popup menu in the database window.

Edit layout
Lets you edit the currently selected layout.

Delete layout
Deletes the currently selected layout (can't delete the last layout).

Set value
Lets you insert/append a value in/to all currently selected records.

Enters a serial number for all selected records into one of the fields. The previous contents of that field will be lost!
