When editing a layout, ArcGIS Pro tool icons appear on the Studio Printing toolbar. When a map is selected, these tools are hidden on the toolbar.
The Map Frame tool allows for adding various maps to your template.
▪Main Map - Every template requires a main map frame. Click the Main Map icon and draw the shape on the template. Use the corner and side controls to resize the map frame. Once a main map has been added, the icon will be grayed out. On the layout, the Main Map frame is labelled WEBMAP_MAP_FRAME.
▪Overview Map - After adding an Overview Map frame, the icon will be grayed out. On the layout, the Overview Map frame is labelled OVERVIEW.
▪Add Custom Map Frame - You can add as many Custom Map frames as you like. On the layout, the Main Map frame is labelled Map Frame.
A scale bar correlates print distances to map (real world) distances. There are three types of scale bars that can be added to a layout:
▪Custom - Configured to be used for a specific scale. Properties set in ArcGIS Pro regarding marks, labels, frequency, etc. are respected.
▪Horizontal - Configured to be used for an arbitrary scale. Properties set in ArcGIS Pro regarding marks, labels, frequency, etc. are ignored.
▪Vertical - Configured to be used for an arbitrary scale. Properties set in ArcGIS Pro regarding marks, labels, frequency, etc. are ignored.
To add a scale bar, select the type and click and drag an area on the template.
Once a Custom scale bar has been added to a layout, double-click the scale bar to open the Element window for configuration changes.
The function fields are layout fields recognizable from Web Office with a few extra functions added such as Start Time, End Time, and Start and End Time.
There are three types of layout fields: Text, Time, and Function fields. When a layout field is added to a layout, it will also appear in the Studio Printing > Layout window.
The function fields are typically a value field and may also have an associated caption field. You can click and drag any caption or value field to reposition it on the layout. You can also double-click the field to open the Element window for configuration changes.
