Offset, Scaled

In the next cell pnt1 is a red point at {1,0.025}. The graphic made also shows pnt2, a blue point 20 printer points to the right and 10 printer points above {1,0.025}. Notice distances in printer points aren't related to the scale on the axes.

The remaining examples used Offset and Scaled.

In the next cell pnt1 is a red point positioned such that the distance from the left edge of the graphic is 10% of the graphic width, and and the distance from the bottom of the graphic is 5% of the graphic height. Also shown is pnt2, a blue point 20 printer points to the right and 10 printer points above pnt1.

In the next cell pnt1 is a red point at {1,0.025}. Also shown is pnt2, a blue point at the position which is to the right of pnt1 by 10% of the graphic width, and above pnt1 by 5% of the graphic height. In addition pnt3 is shown which is a green point 10 printer points to the right of pnt2, and 20 printer points higher than pnt2.

A practical use of Offset is given in the next cell where it's used to specify the position of some text.
