Big improvement in Pro to have magnetic north arrow and magnetic declinaison.  

Please add annual drift now.  Very useful for printed map.


Thank you for submitting this idea, @MarcelSt-Germain 

Pro: Add the Magnetic Calculator tool - GeoNet, The Esri Community is In Product Plan and we expect to see that when Pro 2.7 releases later this year (the tool is called Calculate Magnetic Components).  That tool calculates annual drift.  Would that satisfy what you're looking for?


Hi Kory,

Yes if this is included in Dynamic Text drop down.  For now the annual drift is just what's lacking.  I made a compass showing the north and magnetic declination. Works fine. Just want to add the annual drift just below the declination.

By the way, it is possible to change, like in other programs, the centre of the anchor point of the image.  It’s not essential but, the centre of my image is slightly offset so, I have to manually adjust the magnetic north arrow to the centre of the north one.  Could be nice to add this in idea if it’s not possible.
