FAQ: Is the Identify tool available in ArcGIS Pro?


Is the Identify tool available in ArcGIS Pro?


By default, there is no Identify tool in ArcGIS Pro. The default tool for all views in ArcGIS Pro is the Explore tool. For more details, refer to ArcGIS Pro Help page, Navigation.

In addition, if another tool is active, selected, or measuring, holding down the 'C' key temporarily activates the Explore tool to easily pan, zoom, or identify, without having to change the tool. Currently, it is not possible to draw a box to identify features with the Explore tool.

It is also possible to configure whether to return a pop-up for all the top-most, visible layers, and selectable layers by clicking the drop-down on the Explore command. This is how to return multiple features in multiple layers. The pop-up experience in ArcGIS Pro is designed to be similar to other applications in the platform, including the ArcGIS Online map viewer, where a single click with the navigate tool shows a pop-up. Pop-ups can be configured for each layer to control what fields display, show hyperlinks, embed images, and add graphs.
