Scale dependency of the trace tool (editing)

Dear all,




A question about the ArcMAP trace tool

I am working with 2 client machines. Same ArcGIS Desktop version.



When we do an editing session and we want to create a new polygon using the trace tool:

    - At 1/600 scale: only works on machine A / not working on machine B (but it seems that the snapped layer is available but ArcMAP doesn’t trace automatically)

   - At 1/300 scale, without any extra configuration: it works on both machines !



After a few zoom outs, the tracing isn’t working. I assume this is due to a parameter that defines by example the minimum length between 2 vertices, but I don’t know where to find it.

Any help on this will be much appreciated! :-)


Kind regards,
