Does anyone know if it is possible to stop ArcMap refreshing the data view or layout view whilst editing annotations?
I currently have a task which require hundreds of annotations to be manually repositioned, this process is being slowed down by ArcMap constantly refreshing. All none essential layers have already been turned off which does speed things ups somewhat however if I could stop the view refresh after each reposition the task would be much quicker.
Any suggestions more than welcome
This issue is driving me bonkers! And too often (though I think usually when my data frames are rotated), using the Edit Annotation Tool (to select an annotation label I want to move or delete) doesn't work. It won't select it. I have to select the object using the attribute table, and the apparent clickable position of the label is not in the same place that it is actually drawing. Very frustrating. Using feature cache barely improves this issue, if at all. My best bet so far is to edit the annotation in Data View, but I've also had problems in the past of the annotation changes I make in Data View being exaggerated to an extreme when I go back to Layout View.
