I've been taking some online training with ESRI for the last few weeks and am a beginner with ArcGIS. I've created a map with numerous layers that I've imported from CSV files, and created through sketches. I'd like to work with this map and develop it further in ArcGIS Pro. When I select the web map in ArcGIS Online on the Content tab, and Open it in ArcGIS Pro I don't have full control to edit and continue to add to it. 

I have been trying to export the project to my local system, but I can't see how that is done. There is no way to save locally as a project, and I don't see an option to share it as a project file.

My account is a subscription-based "student" account if that matters. Thanks for any help!

@MtnRunner, In addition to what Christopher suggested, you can also perform editing this way:

In ArcGIS Pro, sign-in with your ArcGIS Online account.

In ArcGIS Pro, open Catalog Pane >> Click Portal >> Add your feature layer (hosted) or web map.

Perform editing and save the changes. 

When saved feature/attribute editing will directly reflect in your ArcGIS Online.

If you need to export data locally, you can add your feature services to map, use "Export Feature" gp tool to save the data locally....You also have the option to 'Publish the layer to ArcGIS Online" or "Overwrite existing layers" in ArcGIS Online through ArcGIS Pro.

'Edit' can mean adding/updating features, or applying updates to a map. It sounds like you want to update the map.

There are requirements and additional steps to set up a web map for work in ArcGIS Pro, outlined here:

Personally I'd open a web map in ArcGIS Pro to do feature editing or publishing of new services, but would otherwise keep the map authoring separate - Pro for file exporting, Map Viewer for web maps.

Thank you, this was helpful. It should have been obvious to me but I'm seeing that ArcGIS has so many features and ways of operating, that it's still overwhelming as I'm skilling up.
