When I create rectangles along a line using "generate rectangles along line" tool in Pro 2.2.4 the rectangles ID field does not start at the end of the polyline. Is there a setting to force the rectangles to follow the line? I have tried altering the "lower left, lower right, etc." with the same results. My ID #1 starts at a point in the line, ID # 8 & 9, at a different point in the line. They do seem to reflect my last edits to the polyline alignments. Any ideas?clip from the Pro mapping screen showing random order of rectangles by ID #

The workaround;

Add a new field and enter a new ID based on the direction that the series (polygons) will flow. Not bad for a few sheets but it does add extra time to the process.

If anyone finds the right answer please let me know.
