How can I add a new graphic text to my map in ArcGIS Pro? In Arc map it was done using the Text tools on the Draw toolbar .
Are these options available in Pro?
Take a look at this:
You can add point and paragraph text to your layout. The benefit of paragraph text is that the text wraps inside the given shape. Text insert tools can be found in the Text group on the Insert tab.
- Choose the insert tool for the type of text you want to insert. There are various shapes available for paragraph text.
Doesn't really answer the question. Currently annotation feature classes are read-only in Pro. Graphic text is a layout only thing. Labels are labels same as they have always been. There is no graphic text element for the map right now like on the ArcMap dataframe or map. There is a good case for it, you might want to add a piece of text in geographic space that appears in all the layouts you have, à la "there be dragons here".
In my business I want everything store in the database for persistence of the data so annotations are the best unless I start putting the mapx or aprx into the database too.
I also was just looking for a simple way to add a temporary graphic box or text in my layers dataview, and I now remember one of the things ArcPro dosn't do. Unless I missing something reading above, S sunny never got a reply.
This should be a very simple thing to able to add a graphic to the layers dataframe, then when not needed anymore, select and delete, or for that matter, select the graphic an convert to feature?
I may be jumping the gun but has not this simple Issue been added to Pro yet?
its very possible that it been resolved but in searching, Im not seeing it, everything appears to ref Arcmap10x not Pro.
Thanks for reading my rant.
