squareknees posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceIs it just me or were you able to put a plot stamp on the title block so it would plot where you wanted it to? As appose to what they have now? I have title blocks for letter size, 11x17, and 24x36 and I have to adjust where the plot stamp is for each one. Also when I am placing the viewports I have to make sure the plot stamp will not print over the drawing. I could have sworn that they use to have an attribute that you could add to a block that would add the date or time or file location, and it was a part of the block itself.
So currently I have the settings of the Plot Stamp for all users being set in the ACADDOC.lsp file and it is working just fine however I have been asked to create plot stamps that define the stage of the checking process the drawings are being printed for. I have no problem doing this however some of our autocad users find it hard to set the properties for the plot stamp so we end up with different looking plot stamps depending on who is setting it up. All that said here is what I need the help with. I have created the .pss files to be loaded as the plot stamp for each stage of a project, however I want these to be read only as I don't want users making adjustments unless they are absolutely needed. Now my question is, is there a way to load a .pss file in the ACADDOC.lsp? I would like everyone to have a default .pss and have to load the .pss they need as it depends on what stage of the project they are in and I would like them to have to select that. I am having this issue because AutoCAD remembers the last loaded .pss file and from that point on that .pss file is the one the user will be using unless they change it. I would like to just turn the plot stamp on and load a default .pss within the ACADDOC.lsp file if possible. If you know of a better way to accomplish this I am open to suggestions. Thanks
Can anyone help me with this - not sure if it a stamp plot item but I am trying to list all the x-references that are associated with a particular drawing on the plot sheet? If anyone can help I would be grateful. Thanks
