I am hoping there is a simple way to create a polygon (feature class or shapefile) from the extent of the data frame in layout mode.

 

I know it is possible to view the bounding coordinates for the data frame and plot a polygon that way, however this is quite a laborious task which can be automated.

 

I discovered this tool http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=0dcb445291bf461bb573b1504c170e0c

however when I install the Add-in I'm unable to see any new extensions or toolbars added. I am using version 10.2.2
