Just wondering if the Buffer Wizard is available in ArcGIS Pro - a quick google search didn't turn anything up. I like the ability to save the buffer in an existing editable layer rather than creating a new feature class when I need to run multiple iterations.

The Buffer tool found on the Modify Features pane (Edit ribbon) allows you to output the tool's results to an existing "editable" layer.

Sarah - I know exactly what you're talking about and used this in my pre-Esri days.  I looked at the internals as well as ArcGIS Ideas and don't see anything about this.  I'd recommend you create a new ArcGIS Idea for this so it gets on the radar for ArcGIS Pro equivalency.

Aha!  That's awesome!  I was not aware of that - today I learned!  Thx Scott!

The Buffer Wizard is on the Analysis Ribbon in ArcGIS Pro.

If you want a buffer to be drawn inside a polygon, used the Buffer analysis tool, and specify a negitive number in the "Distance" field.

Not sure if you've found a work-around, but if you want a buffer to be drawn inside a polygon, used the Buffer analysis tool, and specify a negitive number in the "Distance" field.
