This post to warn you about the existing version of ViewLayoutReplicator.
You can experience troubles with your lookup fields when browsing for records if you have replicated a public view to the search view of the lookup related entity.
The behavior is the following:
When selecting a record from the search window, the lookup field just contains the icon of the entity and not the primary attribute as the result of the selection. This is due to the "preview" attribute of the search view that should be "0" (and not "1" which happens if you used the ViewLayoutReplicator as described above).
To correct this behavior, simply download the new version of the tool and replicate the view again.
