My Editor tool is not working �?? message coming up is �??This map contains data from more than one database or folder. Please choose the layer or workspace to edit.�?� (All the layers are Goulburn Broken CMA layers eg 1750 EVC, Wetland Probability).  I do not want to edit a layer, I just want to Create a Feature.

In Tutorial Exercise 1 in the ArcGIS10, when you select Editor, Start Editing the last eight icons are automatically highlighted (Edit Vertices, Reshape Feature Tool, Cut Polygons Tool, Split Tool, Rotate Tool, Attributes, Sketch Properties, Create Feature) and you can start creating a feature. 

Can anyone please help?
