Does anyone know how to change the properties of a vertex to keep 3 places after the decimal place? My problem is when I go to draw a line and snap to a point, the properties of the line I am drawing are rounding to the nearest whole number instead of keeping the correct number of decimal places and the vertex positions arent staying where I need them to stay. Is there some way to fix this in some kind of settings or options menu. In the Editor Menu - Options, I have Display measurements using 3 decimal places but when I start drawing a line, it rounds to a whole number for each vertex so every vertex is just a little off of where it needs to be.

Create a new geodatabase or shapefile with scale and precision set and import your current data into the new file.
