AutoCAD 2013: Offset Preview

Simliar to the preview functionality that was added last year with AutoCAD 2012 found in the Fillet command and BLEND tool, The OFFSET/CHAMFER command now has a preview in AutoCAD 2013.

There isn’t any other new functionality in the command – only the preview that appears prior to placing the object.
