I am using basic version of ArcMap. I would like to extract only the portion of purple polygon inside the line boundary. How can I do that?
(The purple is ROW and the the blue line is the proposed road layout. I am trying to plot the impacted ROW.)
In editing, doesn't clip feature do what you want?
I would like to select what is inside and not what is outside the boundary

Create a new polygon feature class and use your trace tool to create the polygons then use the clip or intersect tools.
