I'm using ArcMap 10.6. I have a "Master" MXD that has about 30 layers. My project is to make ~30 exhibit maps at a county scale for a legal issue. After I create the ~exhibit maps, the law team will review and ask for revisions to each exhibit.
My workflow is to use the master to create "Exhibit 1", export a PDF and save the MXD with the same name. Rinse and repeat for the 30 maps. This will allow quick revisions. My problem is that I've noticed ArcMap has gotten substantially slower after creating about 10 of these MXDs.
Does saving multiple copies of MXDs negatively affect ArcMap performance?
Is there a solution to streamline the program?
