My biggest hurdle to moving to ArcPro from ArcMap is labels. I've created hundreds of maps in ArcMap, so my transition to ArcPro is importing the layouts and maps from ArcMap to ArcPro however the labels do not import and I have not found a way to do it.  Is there a way to do bring in the labels.  Labels were created by "converting labels to annotation" and saved in the map document.  For me, labeling maps is the most time consuming aspect of my work, labels need to be moved, added, or changed depending on the scale.  So it's never automatic or one size fits all.  I'd love to hear from anyone that has found a way to get labels from an MXD to Arcpro or time-saving work flows.  Thanks
