Only one user can use edit mode at a time. If you try to switch to edit mode while another user is editing, you get the following warning:

Zone editing is done in a separate sub-mode of the edit mode and works for one zone at a time. To switch to this mode, click the Edit mode for zones Edit mode for zones button in the edit mode button group and then click the zone you want to edit. The Edit mode for zones dialog box appears at the top of the map view, and the points of the zone become available for moving.

Point editing works for one point at a time. To move a point, first right-click it to select it, and then click and drag it. Right-clicking the midpoint of an edge creates a new point that splits the edge in half. Use this to make your zone outline more detailed.
