Pro 2.6.0 geometry calculation error

At Pro 2.6.0 the calculated geometry of a feature class attribute is incorrect. A rectangle 66’ x 660’ is 1 acre (43,560 sq. ft.), although, the calculation by right-clicking the attribute and calculating...

 

Property: Area
Area Unit: Acres
Coordinate System: Current Map

 

produces an incorrect calculation. The same procedure was worked in a 2.5 version and the calculation is correct.

 

(The map measure tool calculates accurately in both versions.)

 

Exhibit:

 

Attribute calculation same feature class in v. 2.6 and 2.5
GDB Feature class
Spatial ref: NAD 1983 HARN StatePlane Florida West FIPS 0902 (US FEET)
v. 2.6 of polygon feature 66’x660’ = 10.7639 ac. (468,875 sq. ft.)  incorrect
v. 2.5 same polygon = 1.0 ac. (43,559.93 sq. ft.) correct
See image capture. The two attributes far right are in v.2.5
Attribute table capture shows calculations in v.2.6 and 2.5

Image: screen capture attribute table shows area calculations using Pro 2.6 and 2.5. The two attributes far right are in v.2.5

 

Let me know if you need additional information.

Thanks.
