Has anyone had experience clipping layers to the extent of a shape in ArcGIS Pro?
It works perfectly on Desktop but in Pro it will only clip to the extent of the layer, not the shape. This gives a square, rather than the shape I want.
Is there an option somwhere that I haven't found yet?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I installed pro to get around a bug in ArcMap relating to the export of clipped data frames. Now I find the feature I want is completely absent in pro. Irregular map extents are very useful for displaying spatial information alongside text and graphs. It would be very helpful if some priority was given to sorting this out.
You can Clip Layers in ArcPro just like in ArcMap. But I think it's even enhanced as I don't remember a dropdown that can exclude layers from being clipped-- pretty nice.
All you do is left click the map frame on the Layout tab --> Properties --> Clip Layers
Following this method, my clip is honored in both the Map and Layout windows. However, when I export the layout, the clip is no longer honored. How can I get the clip to remain in the exported PDF?
I'm using ArcGIS Pro 2.3.3 and I still encounter the error in which the clipping is not honored in the export. In the following example, the US state boundaries are clipping the county boundaries. The image on the left is from ArcGIS Pro (showing the clip) and the image on the right is from the export (not showing the clip). So is 2.4 supposed to fix this discrepancy? Thanks for any info you can provide!
