  • Offset[ dx , dy , position ] gives the position of a graphical object obtained by starting at the specified position and then moving by absolute offset dx , dy .
  • Offset can be used to specify offsets in any two-dimensional graphics primitive.
  • position can be either x , y or Scaled[ x , y , ... ].
  • The offset is measured in units of printer's points, approximately equal to of an inch.
  • Offset[ dx , dy ] can be used to specify an absolute radius in a Circle or Disk object.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.4.
  • See also: Scaled, AbsolutePointSize, AbsoluteThickness.
