To Create an Offset from an Element, Along the X or Y Axis

  1. With a tool active, use AccuSnap to display a tentative point at the required point on the element (or place it manually).
  2. Press the <O> shortcut key.

    The compass moves to the tentative point location.

  3. Move the pointer so that it is indexed on the required X or Y axis.

    This sets the focus automatically to the indexed axis.

  4. Key in the required distance.
  5. With the pointer still indexed to the axis, accept with a data point.
