Hi! I have been trying to create a map in arc gis pro and I want to add an inset map with extent indicators only. Every time I try to add a new map frame it automatically includes all the layers open on my main map frame. I can add the extent indicator just fine, but I can't figure out how to remove the layers on the inset map without removing them on the main map. I am not sure what I've been doing wrong and could really use some advice. I haven't been able to find anything online that has helped. >_<
Solved! Go to Solution.
Both map layouts and layers of each map are listed in the table of contents (left hand pane) right? Can you just expand the mapframe dropdown in the TOC right-click and remove them?
Yes that was it! I needed to create a new blank map and use that as my map frame for my inset map. I thought using the default map would have allowed my to edit it separately from my main map, but that wasn't working. :) thank you!
