When I look at this documentation, it seems like I should have this list of styles included in my install.  However, I only have "ArcGIS 2D" and "ArcGIS 3D" included in my installation (See image).   Do I need to do something additional to install these additional styles?  I found this reference that seems to indicate that maybe they are not included by default, but if you go to the gallery as it describes, there are only PDFs there and not the stylx files.

By default, ArcGIS Pro only loads some styles not all styles.  ArcMap would load all styles whether you needed them or not.  To see more styles, go your your Catalog Pane, right click on Styles then Add->Add System Styles.  You'll be in the System Styles UI and from here you can enable or disable any and all styles for your project.  Once you load more styles, the symbology pane you have shown will have more options.  Expand the 2D and 3D items and there they are!  Hope this helps!styles.JPG

Robert, I did what you said, but my System Styles is empty, and it also does not show the System Styles in the project,

Meir - I think what may resolve this style issue for you is to do a repair of your ArcGIS Pro installation.  If you have the ArcGIS Pro executable, double click the *.exe to start the process.  You will be prompted to uninstall the installation or repair the installation.  Choose repair the ArcGIS Pro installation and see if that resolves the missing styles issue.  Please advise.

Thank you for responding so quickly, we ended up uninstalling ArcGIS Pro and installing an older version, which restored the default symbology

Thanks Robert!  Since a Google search about this topic leads to the Blog post I mentioned above, maybe you could mention this to the Author so she could update it to include this info?  That might be helpful for others.
