In ArcMap 9.0, it is possible to add a custom tool to the interface - the Pause Drawing tool. This is useful in making changes to a map, for example, changing the symbology for a number of layers or making changes to any query definitions without having the map redraw.
Follow the steps below to add it to an ArcMap session.
This does not work for editing data. Features cannot be added, edited, or deleted using this tool because at this point the data cannot be seen.
