Creating multi-part lines by default

My organisation has just upgraded to ArcGIS 10.0 from 9.2. In 9.2, lines created with multiple vertices were created as multipart lines by default. In 10.0, lines are divided into individual segments.

So, a line is created with multiple vertices, and each segment is created as a new feature.

When selecting the line, you can only select a segment - to select the entire line at once, all of the features need to be merged. The nature of our maps makes selecting all segments using by area unfeasible.

Is there any way to create new lines with multiple vertices as just one feature, without having to merge all of these disparate features when they are created?
