Align WITH OFFSET

Status: Gathering Support

I'd like the ALIGN tool to have an OFFSET option.  Please see the following mock-up.

 

If I enter 1'-0" for the offset value, then the objects that I'm aligning (moving) will be 1' from the target object.

 

I currently use the ALIGN tool and then move the objects by the offset value.

Yes, yes, I want this too.  I have a floor type for grating where the edge of grating should always be 1/2" back from the edge of framing.  As of now I just lock the flooring sketch to the edge of beam and live with the error.  But this could work in a lot of other applications, slab offsets for example (where you don't have a dimension placed that can be locked).
