I'm an avid user of ArcMap 10.5 and trying to migrate on over to Pro little by little. I work for an engineering firm so we mainly use CAD software, but have been using more GIS. One gripe I have so far is copying geometry from CAD on over to a feature class. I've researched this and read another post here about a similar issue, but it was from feature class to feature class, not CAD geometry.
In 10.5, I setup my geodatabase and add the layers to my exhibit. Then I add the CAD file to the same exhibit and apply a transformation if needed (this is a whole other issue, don't know where to apply a scale factor anymore). I copy a polygon from the CAD file, click paste, and it asks me where I want to paste it. Easy stuff! Now in Pro, I do the exact same process using both Paste or Paste Special and it gives me an error.
I know I could use CAD tools and copy to the geodatabase, but do not want that. Is there something I'm missing to copy/paste just the geometry from CAD files to a GIS feature class?
