Polygon Boundaries Side by Side
Hello. I'm trying to show two polygons with two different color outlines, however, where the two polygon boundaries intersect, one of the outlines will overlap the other. I want to be able to show the two boundaries next to each other rather than having one overlap the other. Please see attached file for an example of what I am looking for.
Mapping Center Answer:
There is no automated way to do what you're asking for. However, by converting your symbology to cartographic representations, you can manually adjust the symbol geometry for the polygons that share an edge to produce the outcome you want.
Once you convert the symbols to representations, and start editing, you will use the Direct Select tool on the representation toolbar to select the shared portion of the geometry of one polygon, and then use the Move Parallel tool to move that edge.
Here is the help topic about selecting a portion of a representation's geometry.
