2) Select Pwr_OffSkt tool or icon to start tool.
3) Select or Deselect Planar Offset to toggle between planar and 3D offsets
4) Spin the Rotation Angle if you have a 3-D offset
5) Adjust the Offset Distance

Offset Distance: adjusts offset distance

Rotation Angle: adjusts the rotation angle of the offset around the original cuve for 3-D offsets only.
