    I have been working on and off with QGIS for several years, and there you have a possibility to use HTML in the layout to produce tables and dynamic text in an orderly and nice manner. In ArcGIS Pro you don't have this possibility.

    A quick video that shows how this is implemented in QGIS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vWTRWCJYV8

    This is also kind of equivalent with AutoCAD blocks in layout.

    The ide:

    Add a layout element that lets you use HTML to create tables with dynamic text.

     

     

    Why:

    We often need to use map series to create hundreds of similar pages with defined setup which earlier where done with layouts in AutoCAD. The costumers therefore expect a "standardized" table with information. This is really cumbersome to create in ArcGIS Pro.

     

    This is not the same as showing the attribute table, as it need to be colspan/rowspan possibilities.
