Previously in ArcMap 10x you could save custom layout MXDs to C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\MapTemplates or C:\...\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.3\ArcMap\Templates. However I can't seem to find a similar directory for ArcGIS Pro, does anyone know if there is a directory for these layouts I think they are .pagx files?

I looked in C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\Resources and C:\...\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\ArcGISPro but couldn't find anything.

My goal is to have custom layouts show in the 'New Layout' window (shown below). I guess its possible Pro creates these on the fly when you click. I realize I can just use the 'Import a layout file' option but it would be cool to have them in the window. Any ideas?

    It is not possible at this time. – user77669 Jul 19 '16 at 14:14
  • I don't think this is possible at the moment...the only option would be, as you say, to save a layout then import it when required. Have you asked ESRI directly, as well? – spk578 Aug 26 '16 at 7:20
  • @spk578 I haven't asked them directly. The more I think about it I don't think Pro really pulls these templates from anywhere like in ArcMap, maybe it just generates them onClick (I could be wrong). Even if there was a place these templates are saved I don't think adding a custom layout file to the folder would cause it to be included in the layout window above. – landocalrissian Aug 26 '16 at 20:26

I agree with your comment:

Consequently, if this functionality is important to you I think you will need to submit an ArcGIS Idea. I think the title for it would be something like:

Allow Layout Gallery of ArcGIS Pro to have custom page sizes added to it
