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.
  • The offset is measured in units of printer's points, equal before magnification to of an inch.
  • Offset[{dx, dy}] can be used to specify an absolute radius in a Circle or Disk object.
