As a new ArcGIS Pro user, I would benefit from a button in the Primary Symbology window that brings me to the Gallery/Properties window.

Go from here:

After some frustration, I figured out that it can be achieved by clicking the symbol in the Table of Contents left pane:

But that was unintuitive to me. I don't understand why I couldn't navigate directly from the Primary Symbology window to the Gallery/Properties window -- via a button right in the Primary Symbology window.

Could the UI be improved to make it more intuitive for new users?

 

Thanks.

Why do the Primary Symbology window and the Gallery/Properties window need to be in separate windows? Why can't they all be subtabs within the greater Symbology tab?

Clicking the patch within the main symbology tab will get you there, but I can't figure out the rhyme or reason behind whether it shows you the gallery or properties. It's not consistent.
