When I create an asset that has a unique ID, I must sort through three feature classes to see what number I left off at. That is just the way our system is designed, and that is not the issue. Let's say that I am three fourths of the way down the attribute table. I find the last number used, so now I know what the next number will be. Returning to the map, I create the asset. In the table, I choose Show select records. Information is added to the the asset. I switch back to Show all records in the attribute table. It automatically sorts back to the beginning of the table. Now I have to scroll all the way down to where I was in the first place. This happens again and again, and it really slows down the editing process.
Many times, I want to compare a different entry with the newly created one (say to find a certain comment that I want to copy), but I don't want that entry to be selected. I only want to quickly view it and copy the comment. Switching between Show all records and Show selected records is good for what I need to do, and in ArcMap, the table stays put, meaning that I can switch back and forth between the two views and not have to do any more scrolling. In Pro, it seems like every action I do, the table sorts on me. It slows down productivity.
My suggestion is that the editing attribute tables should never automatically sort themselves. Please leave it to the user to sort when we choose to. It's already been established that scrolling is unsatisfactory, and if scrolling was set up like it is in ArcMap, I could maybe deal with the table automatically sorting, but really, it's just a hassle.
Thank you for your consideration,
