I have a map in ArcMap that I would like to export as an image, adding also a legend and so on. My issue is that when I go to the Layout View, my data occupy only a small part of the layout view. I would like to zoom in the data, but if I try I do not zoom the data, but the whole layout view.

How can I zoom in in layout view to enlarge the view of my data without zooming the layout view?
