open up your plot dialogue box (if not already done) by clicking the > in the bottom R.H. corner. You will then see an option for Plot Stamp. Click this and you will get options for date & time.

If you want even more control create a block using Fields, add the Fields for plot date and time, file name and path, etc. Insert that into your templates and any existing files. This can be placed anywhere on your drawing, inside the border, etc.

Try _RTEXT and use the diesel option. If you need help modifying this code just come on back and ask.

 

$(getvar, "dwgprefix")$(getvar, "dwgname") ($(getvar, "ctab")) Plotted on: $(edtime, 0, MON DD"," YYYY - H:MMam/pm) by $(getvar, "loginname")
