- [Instructor] AutoCAD for Mac has many tools … for modifying objects and some are less obvious … than simply moving, copying, or rotating them. … We're going to start off with the Offset command, … which we'll find here on the Modify tool panel. … Offset is a little bit different … and that you have to specify the distance … you want to offset first before selecting any objects. … In this case, I'm going to type in three and press Return. … Now, we can select the object we want to offset … and then pick a point on the side that we want to offset to. … I'm going to pick a point up here in space. … We can see that it's created a copy of the object … exactly three units away and parallel. … Let's repeat the process on the circle here. … And we can see that it's created a second circle … exactly three units away. … Now, the rectangle that I have here … is made up of four individual line segments. … When I choose Offset, … we can see that I only get one line that's actually offset … because all of these are individual objects. …
