The map layout editor needs other tools to support this, like the ability to create polylines / symbols. Text callouts with annotations/arrow leaders and the option to have more than one map view element in a single page are also huge limiting factors of making exhibits with global mapper.
*All* of us (at my company) enjoy using global mapper much more than the alternatives, but most of us begrudgingly opt for the alternative on stuff that we have to generate exhibits for.
This is the general layout that we use on some projects, but all of the project managers are always pushing for uniformity in exhibits & titleblocks and GM is the only software we use that this is difficult on. I've used pre-rendered blank pages with the title block on it as an image and inserted it in the background, but it's difficult to work with and frustrating to update as our company title block updates.
As Bob said, this is possible when exporting to a shapefile. Since I use KML files a lot for UAS flight planning, I will often export all of my polygons to shapefile split exports based on the FlightNumber attribute, then use the batch conversion tool to convert to KML. Not the ideal approach, but it works for my use case.
