I would like to add file paths and file names dynamically in the map layout. Is this possible without any programming skills?
Something like this:
[% @project_folder + @project_filename %]

There is not a means to include variables via the interactive Layout Window. However, Batch Plotting includes 'Variable Text String Substitution' functionality with variables for [GM- GeoWorkspacePath] and [GM- GeoWorkspaceName] that seem similar to what you are describing. Here is the link to the online documentation describing 'Variable Text String Substitution' with a table showing the complete list of available variables...
As mentioned earlier 'Variable Text String Substitution' is only available via Batch Plotting, but there is a request on the Product Ideas discussion board to "Use batch plotting variables in the interactive layout window". Thus, if you are interested in using 'Variable Text String Substitution' in the interactive Layout Window you may want to vote for this idea. The direct link to this idea is show below [login required]...

Thanks! Might be useful in the batch plot tool but might be even more useful in layout. Could be good to make these variables globally available.
