    When creating a selection of features by location it would be some convenience to have more capability to logically specify distances from source.  For example, you can specify a positive (outside) or negative (inside) distance in specified units from the source feature(s), but it would be handy to be able to give not just a buffer but a range, e.g. all features within 1/4 mi. beyond the source feature(s) but completely outside them.  This could logically be described as:

         0 < Buffer Distance < 0.25 (where statute miles are the specified unit)

    This can already be accomplished in twio steps in creating a selection and removing from that selection, but having the ability to specify on both ends of the distance would be convenient.
