I'm hand-digitizing new features in ArcGIS Pro. After I draw a feature, I paste or type in attributes. The first few went well, but after a few features, when I would draw a new feature, the attributes of the previous feature would get cleared back to null. I've tried lots of things to stop this from happening: saving edits between features, clicking the "Finish" button between features, saving the project between features, but nothing helps. Just now, I re-entered attributes for one that cleared, but then when I edited vertices of the next one, it cleared the attributes of the previous one again. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Melissa,

Are you entering the attributes into the Attribute Table or the Attributes Pane?

If you're entering into the Attribute Table, you will need to hit Enter to apply edits to the table:

https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/data/tables/edit-a-value-in-a-table-cell.htm

If you're using the Attributes Pane, and you have Auto-Apply checked on, you can just type the values and move to the next attribute. If Auto-Apply is not checked on, you need to click Apply:

https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/edit-feature-attributes.htm

Does this help?

If not, my next suggestion would be contact Esri Technical Support and show them the issue: https://support.esri.com/en/contact-tech-support

Thanks,

Scott
