The Layout window can contain maps, browsers, legends, images, text, and shapes. Many of the printing options necessary to print a Map window are automatically set when printing a Layout window. What you see in your printout will look the same as what you see in the layout on your screen. Most of the contents of a layout print as vector or text, and not as raster.

When the Layout window is active, you can print by clicking Print or Create on the HOME and LAYOUT tabs.

Only the contents of a layout that are within the margins (shown as grid lines on the layout) print. The grid lines, guide lines, and frame selections that you see on a layout do not print.

The print operation uses the printer, page, and margins set on the Print dialog box. If you change the printer settings on this dialog box when printing, then the layout canvas size changes after the print completes to match the new settings. To see how changing the printer settings will affect your printout before you print, use Page Setup to set page size, margins, orientation, and resolution.
