20046: Scale text elements are not supported and were dropped from the layout. Please add a new dynamic text element to your layout to show scale

Scale text elements are not supported and were dropped from the layout.

Solution

  • After importing the .mxd file, open the layout and add dynamic text for scale (<dyn type="mapFrame" name="<MapFrameName>" property="scale"/>).
  • To fix the issue before importing, replace the scale text element with a piece of dynamic text for the data frame scale (<dyn type="dataFrame" name="DataFrameName" property="scale"/>).
