Known issues

This section lists known limitations of Distance and Direction.

ArcGIS Pro

  • ArcGIS Pro becomes unresponsive after adding multiple line input points in quick succession.
  • Distance unit in feature tables is not based on resource value.
  • New feature dataset is added to the default geodatabase if the layers are not present in the table of contents.
  • Range ring radials distorted when they pass near the poles.
  • The Delete key on the Line, Ellipse, and Ring tabs removes all zeros if the leading nonzero digit is deleted.

ArcMap

  • Distance and Direction Ring and Ellipse tool incorrectly labels the distance between rings at certain zoom scales.
  • The Delete key on the Line, Ellipse, and Ring tabs removes all zeros if the leading nonzero digit is deleted.
  • ConstructGeodesicCircle / ConstructGeodesicEllipse fails to return for some projections when you click outside the map extent.
  • Add-in holds on to previous coordinate system after changing the data frame coordinate system.
  • Exported KMZ symbology does not match the source symbology.
  • Ellipse tab does not validate that the major axis is larger than the minor axis, resulting in incorrectly labeled ellipses.
  • Circle tool tells the user inputs are not valid when using keyboard input, if the resulting circle will cross the International Date Line.
  • Preview circle disappears beyond a certain size despite there apparently still being room for expansion.
