Looking to create buffer polygon within a polygon.  And have one set of parameters for the North/South line and another for the East/West line.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

We need more information on what you are trying to achieve, but to get the ball rolling, you can use a negative distance to "buffer within a polygon."

Darren,

I have a polygon Landgrid that I want to create polygons within selected polygons (not outside the polygon) with the ability to set different distances for the North, South, East & West line.

My suggestion is to convert your polygon grid to lines, select and buffer each set of lines separately, merge it all together, and erase.

Darren,

thank you, was able to accomplish by running the buffer for the North/South then running on the East/West then subtracting the graphic to get the polygon I needed.
