    Currently, when we add layers to a map in ArcGIS Pro, we have to add aeach layer in the Locate Settings panel and then configure the provider settings, before we can search against them.

     

     

    In ArcMap, the find tool automatically loads the list of layers you can search on.

     

    Allow this functionality in Pro as well. When a user adds a layer to the map, the Locate panel should automatically create a new Locate Provider, build indexes in the background, and maybe additionally even set all the field Search Modes to "Equal", by default.
