Why is editing a table in ArcGIS Pro so hard?

I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.3.2 and find it very frustrating and time consuming to edit tables. My first issue is that I can not rely that my edits to the table will be saved. I often will make an edit to an attribute, click out of the field and the record will turn <NULL>. This will happen sometimes even after I press save.


Second issues is that if I adjust the attribute width, the table will refresh. For example, if I am on record 800 and I adjust the attribute with, the table will reset back to record number 1....very frustrating and to the point that I switch back to ArcMap to make any table edits.


Third issue with table edits is the auto-sort. Is there a way to stop sorting? If I make an edit to a field that I have a sort set to, the table automatically re-sorts and throws off my spot in the table.


Forth and final issue...why does the table have to "Scan" while dragging the bar across a table to view off-window attributes...this makes it very difficult to make edits and look at tabular data.


I don't mean to whine in this note, I really like using Pro and I am using Pro approx. 60% over ArcMap but that last 40% is mainly due to making table edits.
