This question already has an answer here:
This question has been asked before, but never really answered: Is it possible to have a single time slider control that animates over multiple data frames? Reason being, I have one main map and 4 inset maps with the same time-aware dataset (see image with main frame activated). I can only export the animation with one frame following time. I would like the end result to be sequential images. Has ESRI evolved some way to control multiple frames, or can you suggest a method that would get the same result?
I am aware of the questions at these stackexchange links (How to apply ArcGIS time slider on Multiple Data Frames at once? [3-years old and no solution] and (ArcGis using the time slider to animate multiple data frames [3-months old and no answer]). However, it seems there is a demand for an workaround here, so I would like to keep this question on the boards, though it means reposting the question.
