I have a Arcmap template in a folder, that looks like this notice the page orientation.
When I use my python tool on Arcmap (runs as standalone), which copies the templates over to another directory, updates layers, changes text. it then looks like this (see below). Somehow the page orientation is getting changed, my code in no away effects the page orientation.
Arcmap also Says "Initializing Application" every time it opens a map which takes a while.
Also the attribute table is often a mess, for example I have a column that has 7 digits in it. The template has been formatting to show all 7 digits.
Yet, when the program is run the formatting gets messed up, to only show 6 digits.
It's like Arcmap is remembering some weird settings for page orientation and column width's. If you have any ideas how to fix this would be greatly appreciated!!! .
