Rtext

Have you had a good look at the Express Tools yet? Under the Text sub-menu there is a little gem of a routine called "Rtext." Using this application you can insert Diesel expressions anywhere in your drawing. This is great for Plot Stamps and much easier to setup and maintain than other Plot Stamp applications. Just insert it into your template drawings and away you go.

Here's the one that I use :

Date Plotted : $(edtime, 0, Mon DD"," YYYY - H:MMam/pm)

Plotted By : $(upper, $(getvar, "loginname"))

This "stamps" the Plotted Date and Time as well as the users Login name. 
Check out the "Rtext" help for more details and more uses.
