Kind of what I do Ger but I back it off again a little, nice to know I'm not the only one.

I've still a few to do in the next few weeks so I'll get teh rush of work out of the way and then have a play.
Also got a few house signs and a gate to do for my mother in law, the gate is going to be done in sections so that's gona take some thinking about.

Just set your home offsets to a negative number, whatever amount you want to back off, then home, and goto zero and it'll back away.
