    In ArcGIS Pro 2.1, unchecking the ‘Make newly added layer visible by default’ box under ‘Options > Map and Scene’ disables the ability to preview feature class geometry in the Catalog View.

     

    I propose that previewing a feature class in Catalog View should always display the geometry for the following reasons.

     

    1. Since this setting is found under ‘Map and Scene’ it’s reasonable to expect that it only applies to maps and scenes.
    2. Previewing a feature class in Catalog View is fundamentally different from a workflow standpoint than adding that same feature class to a map or scene.
