It would be great to be able to configure the default scene elevation surface in ArcGIS Pro > Project > Options > Map and Scene.
Similarly to the project default Basemap configuration.
We are looking at adding this for ArcGIS Pro 2.3. I'd like to get a few more details for your particular use case
1) In your workflows do you prefer to set only one elevation source as the default?
2) If you want to set multiple sources as default, how many would you use?
3) Are your elevation sources coming from local files or elevation services in portal or both?
