I am use to AutoCAD and cannot find the answer in any SW tutorial
Can you offset an entity (to a point) without using a dimension ?
How do you offset an entity to a point without giving Acad the distance that it has to offset? The amount of offset you do type in but the resulting distance doesn't show up as a dimension which means that you can't simple click on something to alter the offset amount.
The only difference is that in SW you either have an actual dimension or you have it as a mate. Either way, it's easy to alter.
Else, if this doesn't help, I didn't understand your problem correctly.
If I understand you correctly, you can use copy entities "from to" 2014 SOLIDWORKS Help - Moving or Copying Sketch Entities
If you mean "offset entities" in a sketch, then no, SolidWorks does not offer this. I think it would be a nice addition.

You can always delete the dimension after offsetting the entity.
So you can. Thanks.
That's what I did, I offset to a imaginary point and then deleted the dimension.
Then made it coincidental to the entity I wanted.
Seems redundant ?
