Is there no option to use Custom Layout Templates in ArcGIS Pro? We have put a lot of time into designing custom MXD templates and it seems that they are not accessible in ArcGIS Pro.
The experience for starting with a layout template is still coming. It is scheduled to be in for the final release. The experience will be similar to how you have used map documents as templates in the past, only with Pro you will share a layout as a page layout file (.pagx). You will be able to use these files as a starting point in a new project or open and add them as new layouts to existing projects.
Thank you for the good news.
We look forward to learning ArcGIS Pro.
So it appears that we cannot even copy/paste layout content from a current mxd map? Or am I missing something?
In ArcGIS Pro, click on the Insert tab then choose the Import Map option. This will allow you to import an MXD and get your custom map layout from ArcMap into Pro.
Ah ha! I knew I had to be missing something simple.
Hi David Watkins,
Is this drop down list customizable yet in Pro 2.2? We have custom organization wide templates that we would like to appear in this dropdown menu.
I work on the Layout Team with David. Unfortunately, you will not be able to customize the New Layout drop-down gallery at version 2.2. We're hoping that we can not only enhance this gallery, but also improve the template story in the near future, probably sometime in 2019.
Any update on if this is likely to happen anytime soon?
We have worked on improving the quality of Layout file (.pagx) functionality for 2.4. For example, 2.4 will have the ability to reset the source table for a Table Frame. Unfortunately, the ability to customize the insert layout gallery is something we did not have time for at 2.4. We hope to get to in the near future.
Hopefully 2.5 then
As Joe mentioned previously you can click on the Insert tab then choose the Import Map option to bring in an MXD.
I am just getting to grips with ArcPro and have produced a Layout File (i.e. template) on the Share tab from within a project.
The issue I am having is, when importing the layout file, all the text boxes I have created are showing oversized in comparison to what I originally produced. I am also seeing varying extents across map frames (even though they are set at the same scale)!
If you have any suggestions I would be very grateful!
We haven’t seen any examples of this before. Would it be possible for you to contact technical support and share a copy of your .mxd and .pagx file with them?
