Hi.  I'm using ArcGIS Pro, version 1.2.   In the Contents window, I am working with 4 different shapefiles.  I have used the Selection tool to select several features.  I want to create a new layer from the selected features.  In previous versions of ArcGIS, I could right-click on the shapefile listed in Contents, go to Selection, and several options would appear ('Zoom to Selection', 'Pan to Selection', etc., including an option to 'Create Layer from Selected Features' (approximate wording).


This option does not appear for any of the Shapefiles I am using.  How do I 'create a layer from selected features'?


Thanks for your help.
