If you want the guidelines and everything you can see on screen could you not just do as you have done for the question - take a screenshot and use that?

comment Measure feature by tracing
This seems like a better shortcut than my current system, I have set up a geodatabase on my local drive with a line feature in it. Then as you have suggested I can trace the length that I'm interested in and because it's stored in a GDB it auto calculates the length.

comment Measure feature by tracing
I'm aware of this function - but typically I want to measure part of a feature rather than the entire length, which is normally already stored in the attribute table as well.

comment ArcMap redraws every layer when changing just one
If you are in the data view and making minor movements, then yes it will probably refresh the layers in the basemap every time. The real benefit of this is if you're changing the symbology of some of the layers / adding more data in (which was the original question) or for things like data driven pages where the basemap group will store the view even when you switch back and forth between pages as they effectively have a fixed extent.

comment How to select island polygons witin the same polygon layer?
OK, this is where the Dissolve Field option is useful. You said the islands have the same attributes as those they sit in, but I assume they have different attributes for the other larger polygons? If so tick the relevant field and it will dissolve based on that rather than everything in the layer.
