    It would be nice to have the ability to do some of the things in Pro that ArcGIS Earth offers. 

     

    Examples:

    • Measure Tool: Measure with a circle. Very handy for work we do and used alot in ArcGIS Earth or GE Pro
    • Measure Tool: Measure a path; Same as above
    • Profile Tool: Yeah yeah, Pro can do this with a linear feature class, but you need to be able to do it interactively; I have seen other posts about this; It is embedded in the measure tool in Earth which is nice

     

    The other issue with Pro is how computationally intensive 3D scenes are. ArcGIS Earth and GE Pro seem to be less so. Can we have a "Lite" mode in Pro to replicate that or even just embed Earth into Pro as a Scene option or something?

    It is a hassle to have to Manage differing entities when showing the same items in Pro and Earth. Pro is supposed to bring an all inclusive environment but I still find myself having to work with both Pro and Earth or GE Pro which means duplicating files out of FGDBs into SHPs or KMZs. Not fun.
