I have two polygons and where they meet, I need to create a new line shapefile. I have used the trace method, but it keeps giving me a polygon. Under construction tools, "line" is not an option.

Do I just have to use the "Draw Tool"?

The Intersect tool should work. Be sure to set the output type to "Line" as shown below. enter image description here

The purple line below is the output of the Intersect tool representing the location where the two polygons meet.
