Add a setting to Pro (under "Table") to show field names instead of field aliases by default. It's tedious to change it manually for each table.
I've never been a fan of aliases!
Please implement this, ESRI! Case in point, I did a spatial join between two feature classes with some fields that have the same name. So the output table has NumSFR and NumSFR_1. The '_1' tips me off as two which feature class the field came from.
These setting should be applied to:
It'd be ideal for people to specify this setting for each project, not all projects. But if it can only be one, I want the latter.
I agree with everything you suggested AZendel!
Thank you whoever submitted this! I honestly thought I was losing my mind trying a simple merge... why were there so many fields with the same name?? And why were the switch from alias to fieldname NOT staying. Over 3 hours on a simple merge... so back to ArcMap I go for the merge
I agree with OP in that I rarely use aliases and if so it is for other people who will see the data.
