Oval offset not working?

I'm fairly new to Inventor Fusion, so maybe I'm just not doing this correctly, but sketch oval offsets don't seem to be working in build 576.1.0 of Inventor Fusion Technology for Mac. I can get ellipse offsets to work (with the nearest axis highlighting), but curve-equidistant offsets (i.e. 'oval offsets' as per the manual) don't seem available- with the 'offset' command active, I'm not able to click on any point of the elliptical curve that is not near an axis. Both the Wiki and manual indicate this should be possible.

 

Thanks!

Does it work in Fusion 360?

Yes, it does work in Fusion 360! Though I've noticed Fusion 360 does this odd 'pinching' of an inset oval (just on one side of the major axis), once you approach the inset limit.
