50% of my job is creating map figures in ArcGIS, most of which end up being inserted in Word documents. We use A4 MXD templates, but the maps end up much smaller when inserted into a report. So it seems a bit silly using A4 templates, when the figures end up being resized.
Taking into account 'standard' margins in word processing software (and using A4, not ANSI paper size), what is the optimal page size in which to export a map? They may also have a small caption beneath. I may have just answered my own question, after I go and measure standard margin sizes... But hoping there may be some useful insights from fellow industry colleagues.
