    Sometimes, I like to create graphical / text elements outside of the page layout so the map layout in the background isn't obscuring my thought process -- I usually arrange the elements how I think I want them, then move them into the page area (with the data frame now in "draft" mode) so I can proceed to use guides to line the elements up and space them properly.

    Would be nice to have a ruler extend (doesn't even have to have actual units, just a continuation of the markings) outside the layout page area, and have the ability to add guides outside the page area.
