Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video The new Ribbon interface (continued), part of ArcGIS Pro Essential Training.
- [Instructor] The rest of the ArcGIS Pro interface below the ribbon uses window panes to organize options and information about your project. Depending on the size of your screen and if you work with multiple monitors, you might want to rearrange these interface panes. Simply click and drag on their title bars in order to move them around the screen. Once you start dragging, you'll notice these different drop zones that I can place them on. For example, if I drag the contents and drop it here on the top, it'll lock it to the top of the screen and move the map tab to the bottom. Let's go ahead and click it and drag it again. This time I'm going to drag it to the far right side of the screen, and notice that it places it to the right of our project pane.
We can adjust the size or width of each of these by dragging on the bar between them. We can also group panes into a tabbed interface. If I click and drag on contents and drop it right on top of our project pane, you'll notice that it goes into a tab section down here at the bottom. Now I can flip back and forth between my project pane and my contents pane by clicking on these tabs at the bottom. If I want to remove a tab, just click on the tab and drag it out. Then I can drop it on one of the drop zones again. I'll move it back here to the far left. Finally, if you just want to temporarily remove a pane from your screen, click on the pushpin icon here.
That'll auto-hide it. Notice now that the contents pane just takes up this little sliver on the far left of the screen. When I want to work with it, I'll click on it to reveal its contents, and then when I click off of it, it'll hide it again. Let's go ahead and click on the contents pane, and I'll click on the pushpin to re-pin it and lock it open. Remember that if you accidentally close any of the panes, you can always get them back by visiting the View menu and choosing the appropriate window. And finally the last part of the interface that I want to point out is called the Quick Access toolbar and it lives at the top left corner of your screen. Right now, mine includes options to create a new project, to open a project, and to save a project, which is a very handy icon right there, undo, or redo.
So if I want to customize these options, click on the downward pointing arrow and we can turn any of these options off. For instance, I'm not going to undo or redo very often, so I can turn both of those off and just leave it as Save, New, and Open. So that's a quick tour through the new interface that we'll be working with inside of of ArcGIS Pro including the new ribbons. If you're a longtime ArcMap user, this will feel a little strange. I encourage you to spend some time exploring the ribbons and getting familiar with the new arrangement of the commands that you use most.
