OFFSETTOLAYER.LSP combines the Offset command with the Layer command to move the offset object to the current layer.

Manipulate Data
Start easy and get the job done is the motto for a utility from Matt Stormont, Offset and Layer (Tip #1981). This command function combines the Offset command with the Layer command to move the offset object to the current layer. Load the LSP file and type OffsetToLayer at the command line to activate. The normal Offset command sequence starts, but the resulting offset is placed on the current layer instead of the same layer as the original object. This is a cool example of how easy it is to automate AutoCAD commands inside Visual LISP.
