This function may be used to store a search request ( or n search requests if used in a loop ), in order to perform it again through a script that would loop through all layout fields and set the values according to what the function returned.
It may also be used to temporarily store the content of all fields on layout

Doesn't work with repeating fields, which isn't a problem in find Mode.

This function returns all fields on the layout.
In order to only limit its content to the not empty fields, you may use it in combination with ZapValues ( from Ray Cologon ) , for example

Let ( [
fields = FieldNames ( Get ( FileName ) ; Get ( LayoutName ) ) ;
subst = Substitute ( "<" & fields & ">" ; ["¶" ; ">¶<" ] ) ] ;
ZapValues ( LayoutFields ; subst )
