    Published maps with 3D globe content do not have a layout view.

  1. Layout tools are only available while in layout view.
  2. You can also use the Page Zoom In button Page Zoom In button and Page Zoom Out button Page Zoom Out button on the Layout toolbar to change the layout.
  3. To display the map as it was originally published, click the File menu and click Reload.
  4. If the layer doesn't draw when you move around the data frame, it may have a scale range set that prevents the layer from displaying on the map at certain scales. Right-click the layer in the table of contents, click Properties, then use the Layer Properties dialog box to determine how the scale range is set. Alternatively, you can right-click the layer and click Zoom To Make Visible.
