I'm trying to get used to using ArcGIS 10, but in the meantime I still need to actually get work done. I stumbled across a way to change the editor tool from its 10 version back to the 9.3 version (with the drop-down task bar etc). Now I can't find out ow to do it anywhere, -1 internet for me.

Can anyone can give me the steps to change the editor toolbar back to the 9.3 version?


To revert to the ArcGIS 9 editing environment: "The setting is found in the Advanced ArcMap Settings utility, located in the \Utilities directory where you installed ArcGIS." From http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Reverting_to_the_ArcGIS_9_editing_environment/001t00000013000000/

If you prefer the old method, you can revert by setting by running ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\Utilities\AdvancedArcMapSettings.exe, clicking the Editor tab, and unchecking Create features using templates and restarting ArcMap.

To edit data, you need to add the Editor toolbar to ArcMap by clicking the Editor Toolbar button on the Standard toolbar.

Thanks so much - I knew it was somewhere around Utilities, but I couldn't seem to find quite the right place. In the meantime, I can still toy around with the new editor toolbar layout but still get my work done. Thanks a bunch!
