Hello Ling!

In order to modify the header names visible in a legend in ArcGIS Pro, you can toggle elements in the Legend Properties. For example, in the following screenshot, I assume you want to remove "Businesses" or "Stock Type"?

If yes, here are the steps:

1. Right-click "Legend" in the Table of Contents and go to Properties

2. Click on the Show Properties button in the Element pane under Legend Items.

3. Check or uncheck the items accordingly. For example, to remove "Businesses", you would uncheck "Layer name". To remove "Stock Types", you would uncheck "Headings".

Hopefully that answers your question. Let us know if that works?

Thank you!

Best regards,

Rachel

Question, why is the "headings" greyed out and it won't let me turn it off? It's just a simple point feature class.

I'm having the same problem. I inadvertently did something within the last hour and how can't get rid of these legend headings  on any of my 20 layouts.

I was having the same problem and just figured it out!!!! Within your table of contents, under your legend, click on the layer that has the heading you want to remove. This opens up the format legend item pane. Now you should be able to uncheck the heading under the Show dropdown.

Ah, yes. I had multiple items in the legend selected instead of just the one! Thanks!~
