[FieldTrip] How to adapt a layout file

Dear colleagues,

I was wondering whether someone could give us some advice on how to adapt
an existing layout file.

We would like to adapt easycapM1.mat, as our own layout is highly similar.
Specifically, we would like to remove F1, F2, FT7, FT8, TP7, TP8, CP1 and
CP2. In addition, we would like to add the mastoids (for ICA plotting

We tried the following:

% removing F1, F2, FT7, FT8, TP7, TP8, CP1, CP2:

% this plots the layout with electrodes on the correct positions:
cfg = [];
cfg.layout = lay;

for i = {'F1', 'F2', 'FT7', 'FT8', 'TP7', 'TP8', 'CP1', 'CP2'}
    [truefalse, index] = ismember(i, lay.label);
    if truefalse == 1
        lay.label = setdiff(lay.label, lay.label{index});
        lay.width = lay.width([1:(index-1), (index+1):end]);
        lay.height = lay.height([1:(index-1), (index+1):end]);
        lay.pos = lay.pos([1:(index-1), (index+1):end],:);

% now suddenly many electrodes are plotted on wrong locations,
% but we just wanted to remove some electrodes:
cfg = [];
cfg.layout = lay;

Comments and suggestions will be much appreciated.
