I like how ArcGIS Pro doesn't close the parameters for a GP tool after you start it. I like being able to reuse most of the parameters, change one or two of them, and run it again. That's very efficient. It's like doing a batch job, but you don't have to run everything at the same time. You can do a single run, make sure everything is working correctly, and then just run it again several more times.
The issue I've noticed is that if you change the parameters while the tool is running, there's some sort of code that gets triggered when the tool finishes. This code updates the parameters back to what they were for the previous run. Initially, I didn't notice this and I ran a tool on two occasions with the wrong parameters, specifically some from the previous run and some of the new parameters. This caused me to overwrite some outputs and lose data. It's also annoying because it forces you to start over again or it will refresh a parameter while you are typing in a text field.
My idea is that Esri should investigate this behavior and remove it. It can lead to bad consequences, some of which you aren't aware of if you don't see the screen flash. It's also inefficient.
