Does anyone know how to create data driven pages that uses a set extent instead of the field in a feature? I have a 20 mile transmission line I want to create sequential maps at a certain extent and have page 2 of 20 still on the maps.
You can use a grid or create a polygon feature and draw a square around the area you want to print. Give the squares names or numbers and use that field for your data driven pages.
That sounds ok and I will look into it, but that is not what I had in mind.
I have a 20 mile transmission line and in order to see the whole thing I need to zoom out to 1:100,000, but I want to see specifics and that works for the line at 1:10,000 and if I can somehow use an extend at 1:10,000 and use the transmission line as the thing to map it should work great, but I don't know how to do this.
I’m not sure what exactly you mean in your description but you can create a new data frame and show more than one extent on your layout.
As well not sure but do you think of a tool to create index features for the line, have a look here:
