    In ArcMap 10.6 the Buffer Wizard tool does not appear to work to create interior buffers for polygons.  The work-around is to convert the polygon to poly-lines and then buffer the left or right side.  Symbolizing polygons with a left side or right side wide line type produces irregular results with the symbols occasionally falling outside of the polygon. Symbolization also has the problem in that the units are not ground units and it does not allow area calculations for the interior buffer area. The enhancement request for Pro is to add the ability to buffer the interior of a polygon with one or more buffer rings. buffering polygon tools geoprocessing
