I think this is a separate issue from the ones I've found open regarding layouts - but apologies if this query already exists.   I am looking to batch edit via Python a set of pagx files - but I'm not finding any samples or instructions on this.  For example, I'd like to point to a folder, and add a certain north arrow to all the .pagx template… (Show more)

Hello,   I recently updated my Arc Desktop from 10.7 to 10.8. After updating, all of my ANSI E (34x44) layout .mxd documents that were saved in 10.7, will no longer open in 10.8 with the correct layout, sizing, or proportions. The map opens in a strange 7.25x10.25 layout and I have tried to reset the Page and Print Setup to no avail. Checking the… (Show more)

Is there a document somewhere that lists each of the ArcGIS Pro color ramps by name and their respective hexadecimal values?   For example, the 'Basic Random' ramp: 58A9CC DEEB68 CE5CF3 .... E9DA9A

I found this link on how to do this (Chart symbology—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation ) and in the instructions it says to look within the symbology drop-down under the "Symbolize your layer by… (Show more)

Hi Everyone,    I have been struggling over the last few days to emulate an old American map for a city. I actually faced two main problems:    First One: I have a shapefile for the buildings of the city, but since they are almost few hundreds, I was trying to combine them together in order to get Built-Up urban areas (blocks) instead. Arcgis… (Show more)

I'm creating a map layout that shows points on a map, but there are certain regions of the map that have clusters of features making it impractical to label all features at small scale. I want to include additional map frames at a larger scale to allow for clearer viewing of the clustered features.    I'd like to have a layout where feature… (Show more)

This not a technical 'how to' question but rather an artistic/cartographic one. I often have to make maps with several different (polygon) layers overlapping each other, and it can be very difficult to make each discernible and look good. I use hatches, dots, transparency and colour, but does anyone have some good "do's" and "don'ts" tips?

I have a point shapefile and I want to vary the symbol size using a numeric attribute and vary the color using a text attribute.  It seems like you can do one or the other but not both.   Thanks.
