I'm new to ArcGIS Pro and I am a bit confused on how to add a customised coordinate grid in layout.

I can add a default grid, but I cant find any way to customise it.

I want to create a grid like this. Is it possible?

Hi JamesSydney,

It looks like you want to customize the grid labels.  You can do this by using formatting tags.  In the example below, I added the default "Black Vertical Label Grid" from the Measured Grid section of the Grid gallery to my map frame. I customized the label by splitting the label value using the <placeValue> tag and then incorporating the formatting tag <UND> to place the first part of the label at the top with an underline.

Here is the label format as it appears in my grid element pane:

<UND><dyn type="grid" placeValue="10000" digits="4" showDirections = "false"/></UND>
<dyn type="grid" placeValue="10000.right"/>

Hopefully this will get you a bit closer to what you're looking for with your grid labels! For more information about grid label customization, I'd recommend checking out the grid label documentation (Work with grid label tags—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation) and playing around with your grid.

Hope this helps!
