Offset tool error message behavior


When I click on the wrong spot using the offset tool, I get an error message. Then, the object I had selected is deselected. This last part slows down the user, especially because the way the tool works, one is then required to activate the selection tool, select an object, then reactivate the offset tool.

It should work so that if an error message is generated, hitting "esc" would close the error window, with the offset tool and object still selected. Then we can continue with the operation.

Similarly, if an object is not selected when using the offset tool, an error message is generated. The program should then allow us to select the object to be offset without having to activate the selection tool. Fixing these behaviors would speed up 2D drafting.
