I have a polygon layer with one rectangle. I have created a second polygon layer from a buffer on the rectangle. Therefore 2 differently sized rectangles that are identical in proportions but the smaller one exists completely inside the larger one.
I have lines that cross both rectangles, like Lat Long graticles.
I'd like to get rid of the portions of the lines that are inside the smaller rectangle and the portions of the lines that are outside the larger rectangle leaving just ticks that are the length of the gap between the two rectangle layers.
I don't care if it takes a number of steps, I'd just like to get it done.
I've thought of something that might be the direction of a solution but I'm not sure how to proceed with it. Convert both polygons to lines. Cut the "lat long" lines at the intersections with these "lines from rectangles", then delete the inner and outer leaving just the segments between the two rectangles.
