Then to answer your question no, you cant have the one layout be chosen per default when adding a flexible field.. Since it would be pretty much the same as repeaterfield except less effective. I strongly suggest that if this is an issue for you just purchase the repeater field addon 🙂 Trust me, it’s well worth it!
