I got some workaround for this question: Make a separate neatline for your data frame; make sure it's not grouped with the data frame. Modify your data frame's grid that it will have long enough ticks that'll reach the neatline. Convert your grid into graphics; all the grid's features (ticks, labels, grids etc) comes as element group - ungroup it. Now ...

The Mapping module of ArcPy (arcpy.mapping) is what you will need to use so I recommend that you become familiar with its documentation: Arcpy.mapping is a Python scripting module that is part of the ArcPy site package. It gets installed with ArcGIS for Desktop and is available to all licenses. It was designed primarily to manipulate the contents ...

Real world coordinates export is not precise - seems to be a rough approximation - in their words "data precision loss is due to real-world to pixel coordinate conversion". ...

More specifically, after you follow the instructions on ESRI's site to set up your data-driven map, you can simply insert into any text element: <dyn type="page" property="FieldOfInterest"/>, as seen here.

The TextElement object provides access to properties that enable its repositioning on the page layout as well as modifying the text string and ...

You could request this as an ArcGIS Idea but so far, at least for me, requirements like this have been easy to meet by just opening a new MapDocument object so I suspect it would not attract a lot of votes. For example, when Selecting predefined ArcMap template using ArcPy? means a "predefined template" to be an MXD located in a Map template folder inside ...

The problem also has to do with printer selection. My rulers were missing too and the MXD wouldn't export. I noticed that ArcGIS was trying to reference printer drivers we no longer have and as a consequence the paper settings were greyed out. I set the MXD to the new printer in the Page and Print Setup dialog and I was able to set the paper size again, then ...
