The gui for scorelayout is generated from the Denemo structure for the inputted music (the one saved to disk as a .denemo file) not the LilyPond that is also generated from that structure.
I have documented this feature in the tootip.

You wouldn't actually be saving the gui, just recreating it from the Lilypond text. That should be the same process as you go through when a new custom layout is created.
I know that creating a new layout must create the GUI dynamically because you can create buttons etc for things that you don't know about e.g. header entries that are created by my scripts such as Top Margin and Sub Title.

It would be quite a lot of work to store the gui - there is not just the widgets, but these in turn have data attached to them, including signals with pointers registered with them.
I was wondering where to document that the gui for score layout is only for the current session, after which it can be used but requires LilyPond expertise to modify. Perhaps a section at the end of the tooltip.

Seen this in 0.9.5rc5 and earlier rc.

When you create a custom layout in Score Layout it is shown with all the button etc.
When you save the file, close down Denemo and then open up Denemo again with the same file, the custom layout is just displayed as Lilypond Text.
I assume it should still be the buttons etc at least until you press the "Convert to LilyPond Text" button.
