I'm looking to create a map that has a large area in the background, and then a magnified portion of that area within the same map.  I have found the magnify tool in data view, but cannot create this type of graphic in layout view.  any ideas?

Thanks

To do inset magnifying effects you have to insert a second data frame overlaying the first with all of the layers you need inserted into it and use the Clip to Shape options to make it a circle or any shape other than a rectangle/square.

You need to create two dataframes and use one for the zoomed in section in your layout window.
