From the Dept. of Subtle we only find this parameter in Structural Plan views.
The help documentation says we can use this to “Specify the offset of a beam join to a slanted structural column. This only applies to coarse detail levels.“. I’ve mocked up some framing to see what it does.
In this next image I’ve changed the offset value to 5′-0″. You’ll notice that the column symbol moved down toward the bottom of the column.
In this next image I’ve changed the offset value to -5′-0″. You’ll notice that the column symbol moved up toward the top of the column.
If a column doesn’t pass beyond the view’s level a negative value doesn’t do anything to change that column’s symbol location. Pretty subtle…
