I am using plotstamp with Autocad 2000 on Windows NT Workstation. When I try to print to a HP DesignJet 450c and a HP Laserjet 5000 only half of the drawing comes out and there is no info on the page from plotstamp (time, date drawing name etc.) Does anyone know of another way to get the info on the dwgs besides plotstamp?

My personal preference is to use Rtext, it hasn't
disappointed me yet.  On the other hand, plotstamp never ceased to
disappoint me.

Hi Marc

next to the box where the plotstamp is shown in the Plot dialog box, there is an icon that looks like an address stamp.

By selecting this icon, then choosing Advanced This will allows you to relocate the plotstamp info to be horizontal or vertical , with offsets to put it where you want.

Check into this. I have found it helpful.

Also, you can create an attribute under the Projects pulldown and Titleblock setup to have the drawing name put on there without using the stamp. this takes a little more time to set it up in your Template drawings. I am currently trying to do this with the date and time, but I am struggling getting the date and time to follow right after the cadfile name.

I hope some of this info helps.

Gail
