We are trying to output / 'share' a map as an A0 PDF. The share tool starts but does not prompt for location to save the PDF?
Is there a default location?
How do you force it to prompt for filename and location?
Strange. When I have my layout active it will allow me to share (export) the layout as PDF:
When my map is active it also allows me to create the PDF:
Do you by any change have (used) two screens? Maybe the interface is being displayed on the other screen (which might be disconnected).
If not, I would suggest to contact Esri Support and let them have a look at your situation.
Thanks Xander, that work flow works for me as well but we are using the Print Layout option as it gives us the paper size we need (A1 and A0). The way you showed does not have the larger sizes we need.
Normally, you would define the paper size in the layout and adjust the elements for the paper size selected. So you would go to your layout, right click on the paper (outside the map):
Select properties and set the paper size for which you want to design the map, like A0:
Creating a map using a small paper size and printing it to a different paper size is something that could create huge errors. For instance, when you are using a numeric scale. This number will not correspond with the scale of the printed output. Other problems will happen due to text sizes that might end up very large and not adjusted for the selected output paper size and resolutions not adapted to the output paper size.
My recommendation is to design your map using the paper size you are planning to use for your output and use the Share Layout option explained earlier.
Thanks again Xander for response and the GIS staff do use appropriate templates foe the size of maps they are producing. So if they are needing an A0 plot they choose the A0 template. The issue is not that the correct plot size is selected but that when trying to use the Print Layout function and selecting to send it to PDF, the option to select A0 is not available and that it doesn't prompt for a a location. My guess is it is more to do with the Adobe printer drivers rather than ArcGIS Pro but it is just highlighting some inconsistencies in using ArcGIS Pro.
As an observation from an experienced ArcMap user, there seems to be a lot that ArcGIS Pro should be doing but does not and that is what is frustrating users.
Just wondering, when you print the map from ArcMap on the same computer as where you have ArcGIS Pro, is the A0 option available or not? If using the same driver not the same options are offered from both Apps, this would be something to report to Esri support.
If you are able to generate the A0 PDF file but you cannot print it to A0, since it is not within the print options from for instance Adobe, this would not be an issue related to ArcGIS Pro.
Unfortunately the users don't have ArcMap installed on their computers as the project migrated everyone to ArcGIS Pro.
