ArcGIS Pro 2.3 Released – What’s New?

by | Jan 28, 2019

Esri just released an update for ArcGIS Pro. This new version, 2.3, contains a wealth of improvements, I think you will like. Just to mention a few:

  • Now you can open a new blank project without a template. This means all those project files that normally are created do not get generated. This makes it much easier to use ArcGIS Pro as a management tool like ArcCatalog.
  • You can set ArcGIS Pro to automatically open a specified project. If you only use one project this could make your like a little easier and ArcGIS Pro start a little faster.
  • The Split edit tool now allows you to select existing features to split a polygon into multiple parts. This gives it functionality similar to the Split tool on the Advanced Editing toolbar in ArcMap. I have been waiting on this one for a long time.
  • Creating reports in ArcGIS Pro is now possible.
  • Legend Symbol patches for more than just simple rectangles is now supported in ArcGIS Pro
  • Divide edit tool added for splitting a polygon in to multiple parts based on number of splits, distance, area and so on.
  • Dimension Annotation has been added to ArcGIS Pro
