i like to design a solution with to kinds auf main-layouts. One should be a MaskLayout (for example a order input TabMask) and the other a Layout with Splitter and two TabWorkspaces and some UIExtensionSites...
I thought about creating a shell with two Layouts in different Modules. Is this a good approach, and how can i tell the shell to load a special Layout.
Can i create one global Service (and how) to manage both Layouts.
Thanks Arnold

Yes that is an expected scenario. Make sure you create a new solution with the layout separated from the shell.
The guidance package will create an Infrastructure.Layout project with the default layout. If you want to change depending on the module, you should create a layout view in your module and when the module workitem actives show this layout.

See this post for more details.
