Question about selecting features and creating features in arcmap

When you create a new feature Arcmap automatically selects that new feature when it is done processing it. Also when you already have something selected and create a new feature it overrides what you have selected and selects the new point. Is it possible to stop this? I want to be able to have something selected, create a new feature, and then have both be selected when it is done processing.

Unfortunately no ArcMap will change the selection to the newly created feature so you can add the attribute information for that point. You will have to select the other point to have a multiple selection.

What are you trying to achieve by having multiple selections when editing?
