In arcmap, when we created a label class, all the features of the selected class is repeated.  Now, in pro, all is clear in each label class created.


So, add, in the menu, duplicate label  class to save time.

There is discussion about this over here https://community.esri.com/ideas/12324

Duplicate Label Class would be very helpful as there are so many detailed settings in a label class it takes quite a bit of effort to reproduce them.

Our organization would also like to see this functionality available in Pro. 

Duplicate label classes would save us a lot of set up time when working with multi-scale mapping. 

Thank you!

@MarcelSt-Germain  and @TimAlbert I found it! There's a way to do this! (It's not in the normal places you may look for these settings).

Create a new "blank" label class then in your Table of Contents pane > select the "list by labeling" option>  go to the labeling class you're looking to copy > right click on it and you'll see a copy option> copy these label class properties> right click on your new label class and paste these settings! It works like a charm!

When pasting you'll also see a variety of options

@KoryKramer any way to put this functionality in a more intuitive place? :) 

 

Thanks,

Thanks Amanda,

Effectively Maybe, Kory, leave option to do it automatically like in arcmap leaving this way as an option.
