I'm running ArcGIS Pro 2.4, after migrating from Arcmap 10.7. Arcmap easily allowed you to create annotation with the "Follow Feature" tool, and to curve said annotation to the road. I see that Pro has the Follow Feature tool, but I can't find the option to curve it. As a result, any road labels created via the Follow Feature tool is straight and doesn't follow the curve in the road...
This thread does not answer you question, but maybe someone from ESRI can update the timeline on getting full annotation equivalency in Pro compared to ArcMap (e.g. version where missing features are planned to be added to Pro)?
Thanks Michael! I saw that thread and was hoping that since its 2 years old and 4 versions later, that ESRI would have improved on this functionality and I was just missing it. I'll bump that thread and see if anything is happening with it.
This is something that is part of the development work for 2.5. For now, my suggestion for creating curved annotation that follows a feature (note: there are probably a few approaches):
Here is a video of the above steps:
I hope this helps. Thanks!
