Why did I just waste an hour trying to figure out how to get text on my map?
Not in the layout and not annotation...notes that need to be added.
AGP is not a time saver at all. Back to arcmap to get this thing done.
Cannot be done with v2.2.x, but please vote up this idea:
Graphics and free text in ArcGIS-Pro maps!
Please provide specific use cases as that appears to be what ESRI likes to see.
What about in Scene? Can I even use the labeling function to show names on polygons in Scene?
You could use the "map notes" feature for this. While in your map, go to insert, click on one of the "Layer Templates" and add features as you would a regular feature class. Add a "feature" and create a symbololgy for that feature that is blank, then label with the field for the notes. It's cludgy, but would work if the notes aren't in the field of another feature class.
So much easier to just use Arcmap. Just let me know when AGP is fully functional and I'll try again. I am finding AGP to be a ridiculous time suck and doesn't seem to have the functionality and efficiency that I need. I really gave it a try for a full month and I gotta say, I'm pretty disappointed. I will use it for some things like 3D scenes and geoprocessing, but for making maps for planning with lots of layers with text, labels and annotation (y'know...cartography), I'll stick to Arcmap.
