Regarding the Densifiy() function in Arcade:

It looks like we only have the option to densify using maxSegmentLength. We don't have a way to densify using an angle.

Could ESRI consider adding the option to densify using an angle too?

The Generalize tool found on the Modify Features pane has this option:

Can you please clarify where you are implementing the densify function in Arcade. Is it part of an Attribute Rule?

Good check on this, Scott. Since the idea's title specifies Arcade and the description points to the Arcade function, I changed the idea's label to get it to the team that handles Arcade requests for ArcGIS Pro. Thanks

On closer inspection, it looks like Arcade automatically densifies polyline paths (converts true curves to straight segments).

If that's the case, then densifying by angle might not be necessary.

Curves are currently densified coming into Arcade. I think densify by angle will be an necessary enhancement at the time curve support is added to the language.
