    Default Slow cursor after styling labels- Map 3D 2009

    I am a having a cursor slowdown after styling street labels. I am labeling a streets SHP. I have updated my graphics card driver, checked snapping. The cursor slows down only in the area of the drawing that contains the streets that are lableled.
    My computer is a Dell Inspiron 530, 4GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Quad 300GB hard drive, 2.4 GHz. The graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO with 256 MB. Wireless MIcrosoft mouse. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I think I have figured it out. I imported the SHP instead of connecting to it- that seemed to solve my cursor issue.

    i would also suggest installing SP 1 for Map 3d. Honestly, something isnt right. the FDO connection should be extremely fast. did you set a zoom scale for the labels? or did you jsut label everything all the time. if the latter you need to set up a zoom scale so the lables only appear when you are zoomed in close enough to be useful.

    Also check the varibables PREVIEWEFFECT and SELECTIONPREVIEW. They can slow down the display in large data sets.
