I have a Python script that creates layers in ArcMap. The script works fine, but when a new layer is created a map is always automatically drawn, which makes the script take longer to process. I really don't need the layers to be drawn on the map. Is there any way to set my script to not draw the layers after they have been created?
During a search I found a similar question: How to disable and enable drawing in ArcMap using Python?
Attempting that solution did not work; "No module named SendKeys"
I'm using ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop.
