Is it possible to add a SET_MAP_LAYOUT_OPTS or LOAD_LAYOUT command to the scripting language? Ideally it would enable you to control the all the various layout features (distance scale, elevation legend, margins, etc...) but for my purposes it would also be enough if it had the ability to load an existing .gm_layout file. Thanks!

    Actually that already exists, it's just not documented. If you define a map layout and save a workspace file, you can look in there to see how it works. Basically it is just the contents of a .gm_layout file between MAP_LAYOUT and END_MAP_LAYOUT lines.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
