Title: Add an automated file/info stamp to drawings
Post by: BuckeyeRob on January 02, 2019, 09:53:10 AM
Is there a way to add an automated file/info stamp to drawings?
I would like to have a text entity that updates automatically to show something similar to the following (automation in red):
     File: C:\Drawings\Project123\plan.tcw
     Printed on 1/1/2019 by User1
Thanks for the help.

First off, we have no access to your C: drive.  You would have to add the file as an attachment (you can do that while creating a message by clicking on Attachments and other options at the bottom left of the text entry window).

Don Cheke published a method for doing this several years ago, but it used a Microsoft tool (OLE) that is no longer supported by Microsoft.  Depending on the version of Microsoft Word you have installed, you may get results with this.
