My layout template keeps disappearing and supporting map info doesn't show up in layout view. Whenever I work on projects in ArcMap (10.7.1), the layout template I have chosen for the project always disappears in Layout View and my map does not adhere to the layout, no matter what template I choose. In addition to this, adding map info (scale bar, legend etc.) also do not show up in the layout view for me to place/alter, but appears in random places when the map is exported.
The photos I have attached show the project in layout view to which I have added a scale bar that is invisible (layout chosen is ARCH A Landscape), and the subsequent exported version of that map.
I'm hoping this just a simple rookie error but any help would be greatly appreciated.
