The is undoubtedly user error, but I am stuck. I have a bookmark map series set in my layout. The each page is named by state name. I set a page query on a layer with state name values, and it is being completely ignored. I've tried other tables as well and they don't seem to have any connection to the map series pages at all.
Is there a "turn on page query" button or something?
That is correct - page query does not work with bookmark map series since the bookmark does not currently have data that can be queried against. Perhaps in the future bookmark information such as title and description, or a new attribute(?) can be queried against.
All you need is the name of the bookmark as the value to use to filter. It could probably be done with arcpy. I'll look into it.
Thanks for your reply.
As you have noticed, page queries are not currently supported for bookmark map series in ArcGIS Pro. It sounds like several of you are interested in this functionality, which is awesome. I recommend adding an Idea for this as well so that people can upvote it and share their use cases. Our development teams at Esri monitor the Ideas site closely and implement many ideas with each new release of Pro.
