I have layers that have been loading fine in my ArcMap project but now they load in for a second, and then when annotation begins to load in, everything but the annotative text goes white. So the layers are showing up and then disappearing. This is not a scale or zoom issue. Layers load in briefly at all scales and then always disappear.
I was doing copy/paste of text boxes and moving them around to label parcels with specific data when this happened all of a sudden. Process was working fine, as it always had until the map was refreshing, as it does multiple times, and then white map happened. Tried a restart, tried eliminating possible trouble layers, all computer drivers are up to date. No idea what is happening.
I am using Data Driven Pages with an attribute field for Rotation. Under the data frame properties, under general, this field applies a rotation value. If I change it back to "0" everything loads in as it used to. Once I re-apply the data frame attribute for rotation, its back to the issues of loading for a brief second.
I have resolved the issue. There was a copied and pasted label that creating issues. I went to "Data View" and did a "Full Extent". Once everything finally stopped refreshing there was a label that was taking up the whole frame. I removed it and everything is back to normal.
