Offset in Sketch

Im sure this is a simple solution, but I cant figure it out. On my computer at work, if I use the offset feature (2D sketch) I get a different result than I do on my home computer. For example. If I draw a rectangle and then offset that drawing and dimension it .75, all it takes is that one dimension to constrain the entire offset. On my work computer if I offset that same rectangle, I have to go dimension each line. I can find a way to change the "rules" of that feature. Thanks

Right click before you place it and "Constrain Offset"

Thanks. Kind of a self taught guy here, outside of learning the complex stuff from the masters on here.

Actually anytime between when you click the offset icon and when you place it you can change that.

 

A little tip for people learning Inventor - try right clicking, lots of good stuff is hidden there. If you think, "It would make sense that if I'm doing this I could ..." it's probably there if you right click.
