How i can draw a line between two points...e.g.: I have initial point and endpoint and i need trace a line between this i can do that?

Trace or Create? think the word trace is different - tracing is another function using a vector base map. Think the word 'create' is better. – Mapperz Nov 30 '10 at 15:54

Create a polyline feature class or a shapefile, load it into the map, start editing, turn snapping on, draw line from one point to the next, stop editing. Is this what you are asking about?
