ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Map Document Interaction Performance Patch

Published: July 12, 2005


This Patch solves a performance issue that occurs when interacting with maps while the Effects toolbar is open.


ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Map Document Interaction Performance Patch. This Patch solves a performance issue that occurs when interacting with maps while the Effects toolbar is open. It deals specifically with the issue listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.

We recommend that all ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 who use the effects toolbar and are seeing performance problems, download and install this Patch at their earliest convenience to ensure the highest quality experience when working with ArcGIS Desktop 9.1.

Issues Addressed with this Patch

  • CQ00275783 - The swipe tool should not reset the cache each time the contents of the map are updated.
  • The main issue is:

    • The swipe tool resets the caches each time the document contents are changed. This causes a performance slowdown because an extra caching procedure is executed for every document update.

      This patch resolves the performance issue by only updating the cache when the swipe tool is clicked for use.

Files Installed in this Patch

  • Under the C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Bin folder:
    • MxTools.dll
