Re: Sketch will not offset

05-01-2013 07:14 AM in reply to: swhite
The ipt is part of an exercise in a training text. There are accompanying
files which hold the sketches. I opened their version of the sketch and the
function performed properly. Have no idea what a "transient meta" might be.
"Meta" is not a word, but a prefix meaning (if memory serves) "beyond." I
hate it when code writers pretend to reinvent the English language. Why are
they reluctant to find the correct word? Are they really that lazy?

I am lost.

What happens if you

1. start a new file

2. create a polygon

3. try to offset the polygon

 

Does it work or not?

Repeatedly deleted the polygon and tried to offset new instance to no avail.

Used the shape tool.
Does anyone know what a "meta" is?
"Meta" is not a word, but a prefix meaning "beyond." Why don't people who write code know the English language?

I am not familiar with the "shape" tool.  Can you attach a screen capture here?

he's referring to the polygon shape tool JD

drafdog, download the attached file and let me know if you can offset any of the shapes, or cant for that matter. Trying to figure out if your sketch is perhaps corrupted or something different.

Where are you getting "meta" from? What does it have to do with offsetting a sketch entity?
