Add copy/apply choice to Offset Path
Most of the time, when using the Object > Path > Offset Path tool, I need to replace the original path, rather than add an offset copy of it. Currently, this requires me to offset the path (often multiple at once) and then delete the existing paths.
It would be much easier if Offset Path offered the same choice of "OK"(Apply and replace original path) and "Copy" as the transform tools.
Thanks :) This might be handy for some. I'll post it in the Ai Prerelease Slack community
Yes, a checkbox would also work nicely.
In the meantime, if anyone else has need for this, here's a script I've created that offers the functionality: https://github.com/Tobl4/adobeIllustratorScripts/blob/master/offsetAndReplace.jsx
Interesting. What I do instead is applying an effect instead (with a custom hotkey). When the effect is expanded (again, a hotkey), the object changes to an offset one, no original left. But if you object has a complex appearance, this is an issue, because it gets expanded too...
So I like the request.
'Remove original' checkmark could work just fine.
Alternatively, if the original workflow of "Ok" means copy is to be retained, the pattern could be mirrored: Add a new "Replace" button where the transform tools have the "copy" button.
