Migration of Layout Templates to ArcGIS Pro

If ArcGIS is updated from a version lower than 10.6 to a version 10.6 or higher, then existing custom Esri-Print templates must be changed from ArcMap-based to ArcGIS Pro-based print templates (.pagx).


To do this, the MXD of the layout template must be opened in ArcGIS Pro.
