Is there a way using ArcPy to merge features selected from the same layer into a new feature, exactly as the Edit > Merge tool does it? I want to script this, because several dozen merges need to be done on a series of feature selections (iterating through a list of saved SQL expressions). I looked, but could not find.
I am working in ArcGIS Pro 2.0, but I also have ArcGIS Desktop 10.6 available. Thanks for your help.
