What is the difference between "Go to layout" and "Go to layout by name" and is one quicker than the other?

I think it is the same thing... but if you have a lot of layouts perhaps it is most easy to use this command (layout by name) instead of using the other and waste your time trying to find a layout to select.

The difference is that on go to layout you choose one single layout on go to layout by name you can make something like:

go to layout by name choose(layout1, layout2, layout3, layout4)

which makes it go to a random layout. You can make other things as well.

So there's no difference in speed or performance but a huge difference if you want to include other things like variables for example.

You can also do some string manipulation and for example automate some actions.

Let's say you have a couple of layouts named "Level1", "Level2", "Level3", etc...
You can use the "Go to layout by name" action and go to "Level" & MyVariable and have some common function/action to go through different layouts.
