You're right that it is a bit confusing the way it is stated right now at
the wiki. What is meant is that the first column is not used any more during
the plotting by the plotting functions. But all FieldTrip functions do
expect that that there is a first column present in the layout file
containing the channel number. So when you are making a .lay file you should
indeed add that column (although what is in there is totally ignored by the
plotting functions). So the six columns in the layout file should be: chNum,
X, Y, Width, Height, Lbl.
I've modified the wiki, hope it is clearer now.
All the best,
