I´m making several 50.000 scale thematic maps with two little data frames 1:250.000 per map. I adjust the main data frame size to the 50k sheet (it´s not just square size) and 50.000 scale. After link the little data frames to the main frame, the problem it´s to fix the scale to 1:250.000 for these frames. I´m in ArcMap. When I link the frames to the main frame with the option, Extent, Other data frame, the scale change , and to refix the escale to 250.000 you must break the link. The idea is make a map template to use with data driven page utility. Now, I open the maps and refix the scale by hand.
Is there a way to fix the scale and link the frames?, I didn´t find a solution, maybe it´s simple
Thanks for Cartotalk!
