Is it really not possible to display reference grids in an ArcGIS Pro 1.4 layout view ie Eastings & Northings?

At the moment there only seems to be an option for graticules. The ESRI support webpage (http://support.esri.com/technical-article%5C000012529) mentions that it's not been implemented yet, it seems strange to not include this as an option.

ArcGIS Pro 2.0 has now been released and one of its new features is the [refererence/measured] grids that you are seeking. They were not available in ArcGIS Pro 1.x.

For an introduction to them see Add and modify grids:

A grid is a network of evenly spaced horizontal and vertical lines used to identify locations on a map. You can use grids to display measured locations using projected coordinates on the map. There are numerous ways to display measured grids. For example, you can create a grid on a map frame depicting a 10,000-meter grid using the universal transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system.


Grids will be supported starting with ArcGIS Pro 2.0. See the beta announcement indicating grid support.
