Cannot access bearing/Distance tool

Hello all!

 

I am looking to create some lines based off of some bearings and distances, and I figured out that ArcMap has a tool for this, but when I turn on the COGO editting bar, i do not see the construction tool they are talking about.

 

I right-click while editing while the cogo tool bar is turned on, and nothing.

 

I found this Bearing, Distance, and Delta X,Y—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

 

Which is how I know this is a valid tool, but I cannot find it.  I tried to look up digitize mode, but I don't have a digitize tab under my options.

 

I have an advanced license so I should be able to access this tool.  This is driving me nuts, I am not sure what I am missing to access this tool.  Is it possible you can only use this tool in constructing polygons?  I am trying to use it to construct lines.

 

Thank you,

Tracy
