    Today I finally became frustrated enough to suggest a UX change. Change the Delete Field tool UX to a list of fields with check boxes (yup like ArcMap) I just timed myself in setting up the tool to delete a number of fields from an intersect analysis result. Arc Map 19 seconds from clicking the tool to complete task. ArcPro 2 min 1 second for the same task.


    Arc Pro also took a lot of additional concentration because a number of the fields had similar names and none of them were "human readable" (Thanks TIGER!) The UX design has a human operator over head of 637% on this one task! Add to it the need to refocus concentration of the larger analysis for which this is a small part and the overhead becomes much larger. Please help me work, don't give me things that take me off track.


    Comparison of time to use delete field in Arc Pro 2.5 and Arc Map 10.7 Same File.


    Above is a comparison of the UX and the amount of time it took me to navigate the UX to complete the  exact same task on the exact same data. 


    A list of check boxes is incredibly more efficient  than a series of drop downs.
