I've drawn a rectangle ( sheet metal ) in 2d, on the fly, measuring 9 x 23.25. I need to place a bend line at 11.312. An ortho line is snapped across the bottom of the rectangle; I'm then trying to place the bend line using the offset command. ( It's understood that if a corner of the rectangle were started at the 0,0 point, I could place the line using coordinates. ) Selecting the offset command, the documentation then says to select a line / polyline / arc, then enter the offset into the inspector bar. But the offset command and pointer cursor ( for selecting ) seem to be mutually exclusive. I've toyed with vector copy also, but seem stuck with the cursor only wanting to start a new line, unless the arrow ( select ) is chosen.
Any light you can shed is most appreciated.
