my program freezes after any layout export. I have to close the entire program down and re-open/ any ideas?
You don't actually state whether the layout eventually successfully exports or not. Do you get a valid PDF file in the end?
One particular problem you should be aware of when using any of the ESRI raster basemaps (or for that matter any raster based webservice) in a layout and exporting, is that ArcGIS will use the chosen dpi setting to get the required data for the export. If the dpi setting doubles, the amount of time required to export the layout approximately quadruples, as there is a quadratic relation between dpi and export time. So setting a very high dpi (> 600) may have a serious effect on the exporting time.
Export is successful, DPI is at 100. Going to see if there are any current patches i neef to install.
