I have a couple of .mxt files i have used in ArcGIS desktop (10.4) that are architectural/engineering style borders for our various size plots, Arch D, Arch E, etc, that include company logos, project id boxes etc. Can i bring these existing .mxt files into ArcGIS Pro to add to my layouts there?

Thanks!

What happens if you Save the MXT file as MXD file using ArcMap, and then Import an ArcMap document—ArcGIS Pro ?

I believe that form ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 on wards mxt's are saved as mxd's for print templates. I mean even the system print templates available in C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.5\Templates\ExportWebMapTemplates are also mxd's.

So if you have the mxd's with you, you can simply Import an ArcMap document—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

I hope this helps!
