Is there a way to set Offset that you frequently use?

I learned how to do offset here.

 

Q1. I often use offset on walls.
Several distances such as 10mm, 20mm, etc. are often used.
Is there a way to save this to something like favorite and then use it?

Q2. Or is there a way to input the last used distance?

 

Operating system used: Windows 11

Unfortunately you have to enter the offset distance every time you use it.

Thanks as always for your answers.
I am making memories by coming to Mongolia.
I wasn't able to study archicad because I was doing other work in Mongolia.
I hope that archicad will be widely used in Korea as well.

Wish 1. I wish there was an offset-related favorite since I have to input it every time I do offset.

I hope you have a happy day.

Wishes are being evaluated at the moment and the top 100 or so most liked wishes will be assigned to Graphisoft developers for further investigation.

So, go to the wishes forum (https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Wishes/bd-p/ideas) and make a wish that the offset tool can have a setting where it can remember to last offset distance used or possibly a list of the last 5 or 10 offsets used.

I am not sure if this would be a popular wish though (or even possible), as it is simply a matter of typing a value in the tracker, and the tracker does not store pre-set values.
