Automatically assign active class to offsets


It would be nice to have an option to automatically apply the active class to an offset.

For example if I want to create a fence line around a building on a plan and use the offset tool to create the fence line at a distance it would be nice if I could simply select the building outline in the building class, set the fence line class as active class and do the offset and the resulting offset object is in the fence line class. This will be helpful if you have to generate multiple offsets after another, as it saves time/effort to select the offsets and switch them to a different class.

There are quite a few other things where offsets could be used this way, e.g. autocad can already do this (have the offset line put in the active layer instead of the object's layer)
