Map Book Properties dialog box

Use this dialog box to view basic properties of a map book.

To view map book or tile properties

On the Map Book tab of the Task Pane, right-click the map book name. Click Properties.

NoteExcept for the name, these properties are strings used as field values in sheets. They do not change the actual properties of the map book. For example, if you change a property in this dialog box, the corresponding map book property does not change. However, if your layout template contains a text element with a field that references the property you changed, that text element will change.

Enter a map book name.


Enter the scale used for the selected map book.


Enter the rotation orientation of the selected map book.

Coordinate System

Enter the coordinate system, if one was specified.

Tile Count
