How to offset buildings precisely

Precise and even spacing or offsetting.

1. Select the geometry you want to move

2. Press "Shift - S" then click "Base Point Move"

3. Specify direction and distance of move

This is done by drawing an arrow. Click once to place the start of the arrow, and a second time to place the end. To do this accurately

  • Hold "s" and hover near corners on the map to snap the mouse exactly to them before clicking
  • You can do this for the start and end clicks to move perfectly parallel to a side
  • After clicking once, type the number (eg "5") to specify the exact length of the arrow.
