To quickly make an Offset Plane, or Copy a reference plane, you can use the standard Windows method for creating a copy: Hold down Ctrl (Control) and drag/drop. Select or show an existing reference plane. Hold down your Ctrl key and click/drag on the edge of the plane. You’re automatically entered into the Property Manager for defining an Offset Plane.
