Offset to Current Layer

The OFFSET command now includes the option to put the new object on the current layer. (I think it showed up in 2005 or 2006.) Start the offset command, and before you enter the offset distance, type L (for layer). Your choices will be C (current) or S (source). Using the Current option is helpful for offsetting steel beams off a centerline, or footings off a wall, or all sorts of other things.
