In ArcMap 10.1 can I move duplicate nodes in the same layer like I can in MapInfo? I want to click on the place where two or more lines converge and move the endpoints of all the lines to the location where I release the mouse. In MapInfo it is Options > Preferences > Map Window > Editing > Move Duplicate Nodes in the Same Layer > OK.

If you have a geometric network, did you try these steps? – Kirk Kuykendall Jun 21 '13 at 17:34

ArcGIS for Desktop has map topology capabilities described in the section "Editing Shared Geometry with Topology".

You must first Create a Map Topology which is not the same as a Geodatabase Topology and unlike that is available at all license levels.

kLewis: That worked! Thanks. You can even select which lines whose endpoints you want to mass move. Cool! – Paul Kranz Jun 24 '13 at 11:38
@PaulKranz It looks like the answer by klewis is what you were after so don't forget to reward him/her by hitting the Accept button. – PolyGeo Jul 23 '13 at 22:16

I haven't found that functionality yet in anything made by Esri. But ETGeoTools has exactly what you want: ETGeoTools Toolbar

Find it here:
