Clipping Custom Reference Grid
I have clipped my data frame to an irregular polygon and I have created a custom reference grid. Is it possible to clip the grid as well? From what I can see, it's not possible with a custom grid, only the ones that are part of the grid wizard.
Mapping Center Answer:
Unfortunately clipping does not work for custom overlay grids--only graticules and measured grids. Both of those should work in versions 9.3.1 and 10.
To make the equivalent of what you want to do, I would recommend (in layout view)
- Copying your data frame, pasting it into and aligning it with the original data frame.
- Add the dataset you are using for your custom grid to the pasted copy of your data frame.
- Delete the other layers.
- Remove the clipping extent from the copied data frame as well.
- Now your custom grid can be displayed and labeled as a regular layer.
It's a bit involved as workarounds go, but it should allow you to create the map/look you want.
