Hi,

Is it possible to view several data frames at the same time in ArcGIS (9.3 and/or 10)? Either that, or what would be the fastest way to combine two or more .mxd's into one .mxd?

Thanks!

I you can have two ArcMap windows open next to each other, and then just drag and drop layers between them...

In order to export a content of your MXD project, you can export your data frame content to a layer file (.lyr) from a layer group. The same thing witj the second project. Then, open your two .Lyr in a third mxd. That's probably to only way to proceed.

Bye :D
