then you will have to wait until it is available in PRO, or do the map in ArcMap... read the link, that is why I sent it, it provides a full list of what is NOT available in PRO that IS in ArcMap.  Should save you looking around for stuff that doesn't exist yet.

If you are referring to grids and graticules for layouts, they are not available it is under cartography tools in the big NOT section ...Make Grids and Graticules Layer

I just want to show x and y grid in my final layout and print the map with the grid on.

Its been some time since this post.  I looked at the link and I'm not sure I understand.  I am able to create graticule and measured grids but not referenced grids which is what I need.  I need the ability to say look in A1 to find X feature on the map.  For now, I'll continue using ArcMap for this.  However, this is a feature that Pro needs to eventually have if they want me to stop using ArcMap entirely.  I have a list of things that also force me to continue using ArcMap as well but this is just one of them.

hexagons, rectangles, squares, rotated or not… if memory serves, they are there...

two years is a long time though

Hi Josh, 

Support for the display of reference grids is something we are currently working on for the 2.3 release. The ability to create indexed results (ex: Phila.   -   D1, D2) is something we hope to get to in a future release.

Thanks Tom!  I just wanted to make sure it was on the radar.  I can deal with that.  I only use this functionality some of the time.

I cant figure out if what I am looking for is available or not. I am trying to do the equivalent to this in layout for printing maps:

If it is doable, can someone please direct me to where I set this?

Shaun, 

It is available.  Please refer to the help topic - https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/layouts/grids-and-graticules.htm. Your screenshot shows graticules (in degrees minutes and seconds). So you might be interested in this help topic - https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/layouts/add-and-modify-graticules.htm

Hope this helps, 

Tom
