By default, ArcMap edit sessions are set to perform versioned edits. This means you can only edit data that has been registered as versioned.
To perform nonversioned edits on nonversioned data, you must first set an option on the Versioning tab of the Editing Options dialog box. Essentially, you must turn off versioned editing by unchecking Edit a version of the database with the ability to undo and redo.
By default, the check box for ArcGIS will automatically save changes after each edit is made is enabled.
If you uncheck this check box, you will have to manually perform a save to complete the transaction with the database.
Also when this is unchecked, any runtime application attempting to sync with the data will be blocked from doing so until you have saved your edit session.
Once you start editing, you cannot change the type of edit session while the edit session is open. If you later need to perform versioned edits, you must close the nonversioned edit session, recheck the Edit a version of the database with the ability to undo and redo option, and start a versioned edit session.
