If this refers to a document, then one that is well laid-out has been carefully designed to have a good aesthetic appearance on the page. Typographers and layout artists are trained to do this.

A well-laid-out apartment is a well-designed one, isn't it?

Hi Fandorin,

Bit off-topic but why did you use 'lads' at the end there? This may not be appropriate.

Hello.

I'd say that "everyone/everybody" and "all" are appropriate.
So, I want to show sincere gratitude and think that here we are might be friends. Isn't it appropriate in this way or you mean in grammatical way?
So, I get real mean of that word. Yes, I think it mayn't be appropriate.

Hi Fandorin,

The possible problem with "lads" is that it applies to males only.
