I did insert the field in my .dwt file. It inserts correctly in my drawings and will print the plotdate and time correctly whether plotted in a project batch plot or individually THE FIRST TIME ONLY. After that, it might but usually does not print the time only the date. If I re-insert the field manually, it prints correctly once then the next time only the date.
Any ideas what might be causing that?
Check your field update setting. If it's set to update only on saving, that could be whats causing the problem...
My field update setting was: on open, on save, on plot, on regen and on etransmit. It is now just on open, save and plot. Unfortunately, I have to manually replace the field in the attribute before plotting every time if I want the plot time included in the plotdate.
I'm not able to get AutoCAD to "forget" the field setting here. Could you post a drawing with a field here?
