Just making an example: Layer B has 5 points. There's a layer(A) contains 10 points and 5 of which duplicate(totoally same and overlap) with layer B.

How to output the other 5 non-duplicate points in layer A as a new feature?

Or just delete the 5 duplicate points from it?

I don't think CLIP tool can solve this.

Any suggestion ?

    First, spatial select from A where its features intersect those in B, then "Switch Selection." Then, export features (or create new layer from selection). – Andy Sep 17 '18 at 12:52
  • How to spatial select?Is it a function set in table options? – Joe.Z Sep 18 '18 at 7:46
  1. Select by Location where Feature A is your Input Feature Layer
  2. Set the Relationship to "Intersect" or "Are Identical to"
  3. Set the Selecting Feature to Feature B; run the query
  4. Delete the selected points from Feature A's attribute table
