I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.7.3. I would like if there was an option to turn off the listing of summary measured values in the measure tool window. I don't need this functionality and it just makes the window larger (and in my way) and makes me have to hit Clear Results all the time.

I could see needing the functionality, maybe, some day. But in that case I would like the option to turn it on. Thanks!

From the Measure tool documentation 

"The measure overlay window lists a summary of measured values and includes a net direction angle and distance value.

Press Esc anytime during the sketch to cancel a measure to start over, or click Clear Results Clear Results to completely clear and reset the measurement results."


I agree 100%. For my work, I never need to see a summary list of the measured values. As I make additional measurements the window continues to grow and obscure my view of the map until I get annoyed enough to clear the measurement summary window. Rinse/repeat continuously. It would also be nice to be able to dock the measurement window somewhere other than within the map view.


Agree, I think the measurement tools need more work, it seems to bog down and become slow after 5 measurements or so, especially the area measurement, press clear and the performance is back to normal, not ram related as I have plenty possibly related to taking up the available screen height and scroll bars. Pressing clear all the time is just extra mouse movements my wrist does not need.


OP here


I agree with all the above.  I also want to emphasize the ability to dock the measuring tool somewhere OFF the map window would be very nice.
