As a followup to, I would like to suggest the possibility to script Dynamic Text elements with VBScript JScript or perhaps Python.

Now there is only a limited set of labels, e.g. current date, username, some map properties, etc. It would be nice to be able to alter these texts dynamically. Examples:
  • Display a substrings of some text,
  • Display text in upper or lowercase, display
  • Displaya date exactly two months in the future (this is what I was just asked to do)
This would probably be a bit similar to how featureclass labelling works now.

Closing this, offers a lot of options for dynamic text, and ArcGIS Pro itself offers more options for adding and formatting dynamic text than were available in ArcMap.
