EXOFFSET (Express Tool)

Offsets selected objects.


This enhanced version of the OFFSET command offers several advantages over the standard command, including layer control, undo, and a multiple option.


Distance Offsets the selected object a specified distance
Through Offsets the selected object through a specified point
Layer Specifies the layer for new objects, either the current layer or the layer of the source object
Gaptype (automatically applied) Uses the current setting of the OFFSETGAPTYPE variable to create extended, filleted, or chamfered corners to fill potential gaps in offset polylines.
Multiple Creates multiple offsets.
Tip: Pressing Shift while specifying a side to offset acts as a multiple option and selects the new object. Pressing Ctrl while specifying a side to offset erases the original object.
