Could you explain me how to edit the contour line on ArcMap with ArcGis 10?
I know how to do the reshape but i want to know how to modify the contour line.

Mapping Center Answer:

You can modify a contour line line any other line in an Edit session.  In your case, you could simply add a vertex near one of the endpoints of the two lines that have to connect (to keep the current shape of the line) and then snap the two endpoints together that need to be connected. First, set up the snapping environment so that the endpoints will connect, then select one vertex and move it to the location of the other one. You should see it snap to the location. The final step would be to merge the two lines so that they then become one.
