Copy LayoutElements from one Map to Another

Discussion created by smccoy on Apr 2, 2014
I am trying to figure out if there is a way to copy layout elements (Graphic of Text) from one map to another in python.  I have a series of maps that I use to create dynamic tables and export to PDF. Instead of having to save each one of those maps with all the Layout elements that I may need I would like to set up another map that contains all the elements I could possibly need an pull from them.  Is this possible? Thanks.
