Offset beak alignment
This is similar to beak alignment, so kindly read that first and come back here
Additionally, this functionality comes up when you have the yellow command line available on the screen with a numeric value (either direct or calculated) inside the command line. If such a value (non zero) is available, then the two objects used for the beak align functionality need not have a common coincident vertex.
Instead, it would intelligently move object “b” in such a way that its first helper is coincident with the first helper of object “a” and then it would further rotate it (just as in the beak alignment) so that b's current edge is coincident with a's first edge. And even more … it would then shift “b” by the exact value you had specified in the command line.
This action is specifically useful when you need to leave the required left-over gap between two space to represent the wall between them.
