Feature classes that participate in relationships sometimes are slow to use in ArcMap

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When working with feature classes that participate in relationships with other feature classes or tables in the geodatabase, navigating those relationships is sometimes slow.


The related class should always be in the map, or editing performance will decrease.

  1. Click the Source tab on the table of contents.
