    In ArcMap, hundreds of hours have been spent on the meticulous placement and sizing of several dozen map elements of our most popular map series. Note how the absolute position and dimensions allow up to 4 decimal places.

     

     

    Imagine my surprise, when, importing this map into Pro, all of the elements were "wonky"!

     

    Turns out absolute position and dimensions are limited to two decimal places in Pro. Upon import, all of my original XYs were truncated down to two decimals, shifting everything in a different direction.

     

     

    What difference does .003 inch make? A lot on a 22 by 28 inch map....
