Retain Data Driven Pages Properties

Idea created by jlhansen on Apr 12, 2012
    Disabling the Data Driven Properties should not reset all of the properties to the default. It should retain the last used properties. There are some times when I want to disable the DDP to be able to print an extent other than what's set in the properties. When I go to re-enable the pages I have to re-set all of the properties. They should be retained until I change them, IF I want to change them.
    Also, there are times when I purposely break the link to the source of the data driven page to direct it to a new location (ie my working/scratch directory to the final project data), or want to use different data with the same schema. If the link to the source data is broken, the DDP properties don't recognize that the layer exists or what the properties were.
