David White sends us a routine that he uses to offset objects centered on an object. "I really call this file HO.LSP, but for storage I call it HO_ORG.LSP as I use in other routines. Do you ever have to offset something directly centered between two points? You can do it quick with this little routine. It will become a second nature command once you get used to it and become absolutely indispensable."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Essentially this routine will offset an object half the distance you define. This allows you to make sure the object you are offsetting is centered between the two objects you are creating. Start the command (after loading the routine) by typing HO on the command line. Enter the distance you want the two new points to be apart. The routine halves this number, using the half value to offset the objects.
