Therefore we only have a checkable menu entry "Change Layout" which switches
internal to data mode when not checked and to layout mode when checked.
Calling "Edit Layout" gives the idea to move this entry into the "Edit" menu.

Maybe we should have some interviews with non-technicans to get a idea
what a user wanna do and how he would name/describe it. This should help
us not to reflect our architecture in the menu entries.
