# Offset

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}.

# Details

• Offset can be used to specify offsets in any two-dimensional graphics primitive.
• position can be either {x,y}, Scaled[{x,y},] or ImageScaled[{x,y}].
• 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.
