How to frame data driven pages

The extent of my data driven pages are setup based on a data driven scale attribute. This frames most of my maps well when I batch export them to PDF files. But a few are cut off by the frame. The set scale will fit in the frame; it just needs to be manually panned to fit. It’s only a few pages giving me problems, so I could just go to the problem pages, use the pan tool to adjust the map and export it again. When I do this, the export shows the default position in the frame, not the position that I panned to.


How can I ensure my maps are in frame when batch exporting? How does it determine how to frame your map when you use a data driven scale attribute? There doesn’t seem to be a way to use both “Best Fit” and “Data Driven Scale” which would be ideal.


Why when I manually pan the map in my frame, does it not export the panned position?


I have attached some photos of the issue and also my page settings.
