I am using the trace tool on the editor tool bar. Snapping is set to Vertex. When I finish my trace the vertex points are approx 5 feet off in some cases. Consequently my new polygon is not coincident to the existing polygon.
A. is anyone else having this problem?
B. This is not the first time. This happens all the time.

Is there a snapping tolerance setting I'm missing?

Please help. I'm very frustrated.
