  2. Target layer:  layer where the new objects will be created.  You can choose an existing layer, or create a new layer.
  3. Overlap polygons: the wizard will save the object in the target layer, without modifying the reference object.
  4. Eliminate previous: the wizard will delete the reference object.
  5. Subtract previous: the wizard will subtract from the new object the selected reference polygon.
