Of course I omitted that. You're assumed to have read the

So wait, the most useful piece of information, the piece of information
which could have been extremely helpful, the piece of information which I
obviously forgot, otherwise I wouldn't have asked, was intentionally
omitted? I realise that Graham has all of the manuals memorised and can
call them up in his mind like a database, but I am not so gifted. And
most of the time, I need a reminder.
It wasn't /intentionally/ omitted. I it up under the
cunningly-disguised names of "Moving objects" and "Fixing
overlappign notation". You don't even need to use extra-offset;
those pages list a number of other options for moving stuff
There are plenty of pieces of info which I'll admit are hard to
find in the docs, but this isn't one of them.
Let me say it again, loud and clear: read the Learning Manual. A
few times. There's lots of great stuff in there.
Oh, perhaps I haven't made this clear.
I do not have it memorised. I don't use extra offset all that often. I asked for help because the ways I know of how to move the object, (namely looking in the IR for things that might control positioning the object, in this case, avoid-slur) didn't work. And I wanted help understanding it, because usually when something doesn't work the way I'm expecting, it's because I don't understand what the expected behavior is.
