In ArcGIS Pro you can turn on the option "Show feature counts" in Format legend item -> Feature Display Options to show the number of features for each legend item. When turned on however the number is put right after the legend item without any spaces, like this: motorway245.

Instead I'd like either a space between the two, or better, put the feature count in parentheses like this:

motorway (245).

Any way to do this in ArcGIS pro?
