Snapping to Multiple Vertices

Dear all,

I would like to create a polygon of a section of this coastline using the snapping tool to snap to an existing polyline. In Mapinfo you can hold shift (while snapping is enabled) and hover over a vertice of a polygon to snap to all vertices along the line instead of having to snap to each one. Is this possible in ArcMap (I have ArcInfo)?

Kind regards,

I would recommend using the Trace tool.  The tool will follow along the line and snap to the vertices of the existing feature.
