In ArcMap, while creating a feature (or reshaping), there is a display at the bottom of the map showing the measurements of the current line segment with length & direction.    Is there an equivalent in Pro?   I've checked under Options-Editing (and everywhere else I can think of) but do not see any option for this.

If it doesn't exist, it would certainly be a good enhancement for the future.

Hi @LonSharp You can turn on Dynamic Constraints to show segment direction (or deflection) and distance. It also works while reshaping. If you want to enter specific vales, you can hit TAB while sketching.

Turn it on at the bottom of the map:

I knew it would be somewhere obvious!   Many thanks Scott.
