I'm finding that the so-called "Import Map" feature often does not work, or when it does, it is very slow. It would be far quicker (seconds in fact) if I could drag layers from ArcMap to Pro, and recreate any elements if needed.
I assisted a client with this today. It's strange that ArcMap can drag layers between it's documents, Pro can drag layer between it's documents, and Pro can import an MXD; you can even drag an ArcGIS .lyr file into Pro. (tested ok 2.4.1)
Yet you can't drag a layer from ArcMap to Pro. Pro knows what it is and how to use it, it just won't.
I get that importing an MXD and converting it to a Pro project is the intended direction, but this doesn't always work for all workflows. e..g.
In order to facilitate transition to Pro (and while that transition is occurring) this feature would be very useful and almost essential when troubleshooting ArcMap documents or building new Pro projects from (possibly multiple) ArcMap documents.
