On the context menu for editing, Delta X,Y,Z creates a vertex at a specified x,y,z distance measured from the last vertex. It is available when you create a new polyline or polygon feature, or edit a finished feature with Continue Feature .
To specify an x,y,z distance, create at least one vertex, right-click and click Delta X,Y,Z , and specify the delta x,y,z distance.
If you have created at least one vertex, skip to step 5.
