Questions tagged [layouts]

Layout refers to the appearance of a map as it is published, including not only the map view itself but any north arrows, legends, scale bars, map titles, neatlines, and so on. Questions should relate specifically to the laying out and formatting of these various map elements on the page, rather than the contents of the map window itself.
