Is there an easy way to export selected features, or features in the current map extent, to a File Geodatabase?

In ArcMap, I can export data from a single layer, and select All features in view extent, but this option does not seem to be available in Pro. The tools on the Share tab all seem to export entire featureclasses.

If possible, I would like to export data from multiple layers at once, and also include relationshipclasses between the features.


You can use the Environments tab of Copy Features (right-click layer and export) and choose Current Display Extent:

    Thanks. I also found Analysis > Tools > Data Management Tools > Package > Package Map. This allows you to export features from all layers, for a given extent, to a File Geodatabase. Unfortunately it breaks on related records with Cannot reset foreign key values for an existing relationship row, so I guess I need to export all layers separately. – Berend Jul 6 '18 at 6:49
