I rarely bother with labels, but sometimes it would be nice to toggle them on/off. Something like the Pause Drawing button, except that it would only turn off labels (all labels in all layers...not just a single layer).


If you look on the Labeling Toolbar, there is a Pause button (alt text) that acts as a toggle for ALL labels.

You can turn on dynamic labels for multiple layers at one time by opening the Label Manager and checking the box next to each layer. alt text

Suggestion: Set Scale Ranges

Some labels are most useful within a given scale range. http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisdesktop/9.3/index.cfm?TopicName=Setting_scale_ranges_for_label_classes
