I am new to ArcGIS Pro (I have been using ArcGIS desktop for quite long time now).
I am trying to compose the maps using ArcGIS Pro (Create Layout). But somehow the layer rendering/labeling seems to be slow compared to ArcGIS desktop (When I use the same data).
Can anyone please tell me what could be the reason? Is there any rendering/display settings to be tweaked?
Hi @MatthewMinick First run through Troubleshooting Performance Issues in ArcGIS Pro to ensure that the machine and graphics card meet the ArcGIS Pro requirements which are different than ArcMap. You will also find display and rendering settings in that document that you can work with.
Work through those steps first and follow up to let us know if you're still seeing performance differences.
Are you using the Standard labeling engine in both ArcMap and Pro? Or Maplex in both ArcMap and Pro? (I ask because Maplex is an option in ArcMap, but is the default in Pro).
Just adding locally-stored shapefiles to a map in Pro is not a geoprocessing task, and should not under-perform ArcMap. With that in mind, ArcGIS Pro performance issues are not an isolated anomaly: Why does ArcGIS Pro have to be so slow??? Unfortunately the onus to actually prove this is on you, which you can do with https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000013215 and https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/announcements/announcements/how-to-use-arcgis-pro-perftool....
I guess the issue was with the labeling (Because I have 10 or more layers labeled together) so I tweaked the Inbound and Outbound limits in the Labeling properties. It is better now, Not very fast, but better.
I also changed the display setting as suggested by @KoryKramer
@MatthewMinick I'm glad to hear that it is better, but if you are comparing to ArcMap and noting that draw time in Pro is slower, we would want to get this example to the team to investigate.
We have your 'can you run it' specs from the earlier comment. In order to understand if the performance may be impacted by the machine's limited dedicated video RAM, would you be able to share a map package? If your map was originally created in ArcMap and you imported it into ArcGIS Pro, could you share the mpk from ArcMap?
If it was created in Pro, would you be able to create a handful of bookmarks at different scales that demonstrate different labeling densities, record the times you're seeing for labels to draw for each respective bookmark, and send us those stats along with the mpkx? You can email me at email@example.com.
Latching onto this topic, I have a map that renders pretty quick in Desktop and I had recreated it in Pro and it labels painfully slow. I then went and imported the original map document instead of remaking it by hand, same issue. It does not have any imagery, and my computer performance is 100% not the issue. It doesn't include any ESRI Basemap layers, it is just a PLSS grid on a large piece of paper with a couple of other shapefile features and it is so slow to label in the sections.
