Hi,

 

I am working with more than 100 Topographic Maps using same Legend elements except some variables, for each one I have to create an MXD Plotting Template.

 

What is the best practice to manage these mxds ?

 

Thanks,

Mostafa

Hi Mostafa,

You can modify One of your MXDs to fit your general Layout demands and then use the "Change Layout" command to apply it to all the other MXDs.

There are 2 ways which might help you with automation of the process with different approaches:

1. Using Python code

2. Using Data Driven Pages (One MXD for all the maps).

You can also combine these 2 methods.

Good Luck
