  • By moving the pointer back and forth over the base plane in the graphic view, you can change the offset direction. You can also change the direction by changing the sign in the Offset box.

  • Clicking Offset Lock locks the current Offset value, disabling updates of the offset value by moving the mouse.

  • To use the Step box, type a value, and then move the cursor in the graphics view. The offset follows the cursor, incrementing by the step value that you specified.
