I want to export a map exactly how it appears in the map view.  When I print or export, it cuts off the sides of the map.  How do I get the full image?  I can use an external tool to capture it but the resolution isn't as good as I would like.

Hi Cindy,

What export format are you using?  Are you just using the Share tab > Export Group > Map workflow?  Do you have an image of what your export looks like?

Best,

Marisa

I believe this is a bug.

I'm using Pro 2.2.0 and exporting a map (not layout) to a TIFF,JPEG, BMP, PDF etc results in a square output even though the display/screen is landscape; the extent is zoomed and centered rather than simply being clipped to either the X or Y extent; brightness/contrast/gamma of raster layers isn't maintained and is set to default values.

So....lots is wrong there and it's pretty basic functionality.

I am having the same problem and am surprised that there is no answer to this yet. @ESRI #ESRI can you have a look into this asap? Or is anyone else from this community able to help out.

Thanks

Edwin

Make sure you're updated to ArcGIS Pro 2.3 (plus patch 3) = 2.3.3

At 2.3, the export map issue was fixed.  See https://community.esri.com/community/arcgis-ideas/blog/2019/01/17/ideas-in-arcgis-pro-23 at 20 sec in the video.

See this thread for more details: https://community.esri.com/ideas/15804-printing-from-arcgis-pro  The export issue should be all set in 2.3.  The direct print part is still work that needs to be done (but since export works, you can export then print).

Hope this helps.

Thank you Kory,

Yes I have the patch installed. If I can still detail a bit further. When I create a layout and have this layout activated, I export to tiff  and am able to add a world file. Though then I get a square result cutting of parts of the map. When I export the layout closed to tiff, I get the map in the right dimensions but in this way it does not allow me to add the world file. 

Maybe this is the part that is still under development. Maybe you have some more info?

Cheers

Edwin
