Font facet offset

I am trying to make an explanation the font facet block that is as correct and complete as I can manage. I am trying to show what 'offset' does but I can't seem to make it do anything. In the sample below, I would expect the text 'test' to be offset from the top left corner of the 200x200 beige box by 100 pixels to the right and 100 pixels down, but it is not. Can anyone explain what I am not understanding?
Thank you.

I never saw FONT/OFFSET ever have any effect.
By the way, I made a VID STYLE to more easily manipulate FONT objects:
