When switching from data view to layout view, the map goes blank.
What is the problem here?
Are you using the desktop? If so, have you set up any page and print settings from the File menu?
There's some info about data driven pages here ArcGIS Desktop that might help you. If not, could you go into more detail as to what you are trying to do?
Is the Data frame window available on the layout page?
You could add a new data frame (Insert > Data Frame). Add all the layers from the old data frame to new one. Adjust the margin of the data frame with the page.
Hope it helps!
Hi, you could also try zooming into the layer once you are in layout view, and configure the data frame properties.
