Utility/Geometry/Offset

or from the edit toolbar.
I've added an extra icon to my edit toolbar for offset fixed distance, when clicked it asks for the offset distance, hit enter to accept whats already there or enter a new distance.
In the support Files\Toolbars\Edit.dtb under the existing OFFSET entry I added

[OFFSETFD]
Hint=Offset (Fixed Distance) - Copy entities parallel to existing entities
Icon=DTB_OffsetFD
A=^:^F6^F3^Ã^F1^F2^F2

Another way to get quick access to the Offset function is to edit your DcadWin.mcr file (that is in the DataCAD/Support Files folder). Here is my Alt-O keyboard shortcut:

Code: Select allO^Ä^20#^F3^F2^F2
//Perpendicular Offset\Distance


You can Copy and Paste this into your DcadWin.mcr file in place of the O (or another letter if you want - but change the O at the beginning with the letter of your choice).

Thanks. I had not used datacad for 2 years. I finally found it myself.
