In order to avoid slowness I would like to interrupt labels display when I'm working with ArcGis 10.

I read that the F9 key could do that but it doesn't work for me. Does anyone know an other way to proceed, please ?


The Labeling Toolbar has a Pause Labeling button

enter image description here

The Pause Labeling button will stop labels from displaying until you're ready for them to draw.

Pause Labeling - Suspends drawing of labels

See A quick tour of the Labeling toolbar for more info.

To interrupt the labels while they are drawing, just hit the Esc key.
