Problem: Layout view does not show any of the data currently in the map

Description

Data will display in data view but switching to layout view does not show any of the data currently in the map.

Cause

The Data Frame has been set to use draft mode drawing. Draft mode drawing disables the drawing of all elements in the data frames, making it faster to work with the map layout.

Solution or Workaround

Turn draft mode drawing off to see all elements within the data frame(s) when working in the map layout. Navigate to Data Frame > Properties > Frame and uncheck Draft mode

For more information on draft mode drawing, refer to the ArcGIS Help Topic titled 'Working with data frames'.
