Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project where I want to merge two buffers that I created, but I only want to keep the areas where they overlap. What is the best way to go about this? I've tried the Merge and Union tools, but neither are giving the output I'm looking for.

Thank you in advance!! Photo below for reference.

I think that's just the Intersect tool.

Edit: maybe follow that up with a dissolve? Unless the attributes are important, then just keep the intersected features.
