Offsetting tiles of a fill

Offsetting the tiles in a pattern fill or texture fill, lets you specify exactly where the patterns or textures begin. When you adjust the horizontal or vertical position of the first pattern or texture, relative to the top of the object, your adjustment affects the rest of the pattern or texture. The Preview window reflects the changes of any offset.
