I packaged an ArcGIs Pro project yesterday and it took over an hour. This seemed excessively long.
All it had in it was 26 layers, including 4 annotation groups. Each layer contained hardly any features. The total file size was about 43.6MB. Some of the layers were on an imported ArcMap document.
I am using a dell i7 laptop with 16GB of RAM so it's at the optimum level as recommended by ESRI.
Talking with UK support, they said an hour was probably about right. Should it really take this long?
