Is it possible to export the elements and constants used in a layout to a Python script? Something similar to creating a model and exporting it to Python but instead of being a model, it's a layout?
I have created a layout which contains 4 dataframes. I would like to create a python script which loops through folders and updates the layout based on the layers in each folder (each folder represent a species). I also want each iteration to export to a .png and save as a new mxd. I’m not sure exactly where to start but feel there are so many layout elements that would need to be described (symbology ramp color, symbology classification, scale and extent of each layer, etc) . . . working from a template would be helpful. The end result would be 31 different mxd and associated png.
