I am by no means "stuck in my ways" but the workflow for adding acreage and length calculations in ArcGIS Pro is clunky. I want to just right click on the attribute column like in desktop to calculate geometry...why is this not available?
Add Geometry Attributes—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop has replaced Calculate Geometry in ArcGIS Pro.
I suspect new software and a more uniform workflow with a focus on using tools rather than shortcuts. I don't mind the consistency at all and the new 'project'/'catalog' window makes it easy to keep what you have used organized and repeatable.
This came up in the ArcGIS Pro Q&A session during the recent conference and, as pointed out, ESRI's response was to 1.) point to the add geometry attributes tool in the Toolbox; and 2.) add an idea to the Ideas forum and vote it up! Because they're really listening to their users!
