Is there way in Arc Editor (10.0) to adjust all the vertices z values by an offset? (translate in z axis?)

I have many polylines which need to be lowered (eg: subtract 1m from every vertex z-value).

Have you looked at the Adjust 3D Z Geoprocessing Tool?

The help mentions

adjust_value : A value to apply to all Z-values. To decrease the Z-values for the entire feature class, enter a negative number. To increase, enter a positive value.

Thanks. I did not see that tool when searching for a solution. –  Matt Mar 21 '13 at 17:20
