Offset Face Bug

its not a big issue for me just a bug i have found . when you use the Hot Key "Q" and use the Offset face feature from it does not show up in parametric programming to edit later. Offset face works just fine when selected from anywhere else . ive tried restarting fusion and using the feature in multiple projects and the bug is occurring consistently across the board for me.

This is not really a bug (although it would be easier to tell with an example).  Q is bound to Press/Pull (which is different than Offset Faces).  It defaults to "automatic" mode, which means:  If Fusion can move this face by editing a feature, it will do that.  Only if it cannot move that face will it add an Offset Faces feature.  

 

To illustrate:  create a sketch, a rectangle without dimensions, and an Extrude.  Try Press/Pull on all 6 faces.  5 of them will edit the feature (either the sketch or the extrude distance), but the bottom face will add an Offset Faces feature.

I meant that it will open up the offset face feature and allow you to edit the part but then it will not add an Offset face feature icon in the timeline and when you right click the face after the edit and select "edit feature" there is no history of the offset face feature. Its as if its running the offset face feature as direct modeling event. 

 

I had realized this after I had used a couple of offset face features on a design then later could not find the feature on the timeline. In the past I was always able to use the press pull feature and have it added to the timeline .

That is the behavior Jeff described. If you do NOT want to edit a feature earlier int the timeline, you need to change the setting "automatic" to "new feature" (or whatever the correct term is).

oh I understand now . That is little counterintuitive for working on imported models . It allows you to change the model with no history of the changes. Which just seems more like a direct modeling workflow. I appreciate the reply.
