In ArcMap, while drawing a line the bottom display would show direction and total length.  Is there a way to show this in Pro?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Scott, 

Yes, you can. Toggle on the Dynamic Constraints.

Thanks Patrick.  I have tried using the Dynamic Constraints.  When using this the length resets every time a vertex is put down.  Is there a way to see the total length accumulate after setting multiple vertices?  I feel like I am missing something simple.  Thanks again for your response.

Hi. When I turn on Dynamic Constraints, even while actively drawing, during or after drawing a graphic line on the map I can not see any length dimensions? Is there meant to be a pop up, a display in the lower status bar? Please advise.
