(1) In word processing and desktop publishing, layout refers to the arrangement of text and graphics. The layout of a document can determine which points are emphasized, and whether the document is aesthetically pleasing.

While no computer program can substitute for a professional layout artist, a powerful desktop publishing system can make it easier to lay out professional-looking documents. WYSIWYG helps layout considerably because it allows you to lay out a document on the display screen and see what it will look like when printed.

(2) In database management systems, layout refers to the way information is displayed. You can change the layout by selecting different fields.
