FAQ: Can the link between the layout view and the data view be broken?

Question

Can the link between the layout view and the data view be broken?

Answer

No. To workaround this, use bookmarks to return to the appropriate extent before switching back to layout view or create a duplicate dataframe that can be dragged from the layout. This secondary dataframe can be used for closer inspection of the data without changing the extents of the data in the layout.
