Is there a way to set framerate of playing 'Layout' like ya can 'Preview'

I have dual monitor and am setting weights, so as layout plays, I can set weights in modeler and watch them update in Layout, BUT it plays so fast that I can't see the tween frames good enough to see if weights are OK (bone weights) in the tween frames.

So I need to play out like you can in the preview view.

What I tried;

in general options there IS a place to set framerate but it means I also have to extend the total frames of layout (not what I want).

Below the framerate dialog, theres a "play at exact rate" - it helps alot.

Yep, seen that but it doesn't give the options that 'Play Preview does and I can't get like play at 10 or 15 FPS in layout

General options Just below the frame slider label is frames per second. I changed this down to 7 frames per second and the whole animation is dramically slower. The problem is that it moves the keyframes. I had to manually put the keyframes back where they belong.
Funny part is I dont remember that being there, I could have sworn I looked before.

Putting the frame per second back to 30, moves the keyframes as well. So it probably not worth moving the keyframes since it is only temporary.

Or just save a copy of the scene and use it to fiddle the playback rate.
