Plotmaker - Auto Text Problem

Presntly working with Plotmaker 3.0.0. R3 USA (6318) under Windows XP Proff.

Plotmaker displays the drawing name as [Undefined Value].
The drawing name shows in the Layout settings window, and also un the Navigator window, next to the field properties at the bottom.

Other auto text such as scale, output scale, drawing path, etc shows correctly.

Am I missing some obscure setting ?

This might be a straight-forward (obvious) question... Have you saved the .LBK file yet?

Listen, I am so scared of Plotmaker that the minute I open the Book, I save it with a new name, just in case.

A few weeks ago I had to re-construct a corrupted .LBK because Plotmaker does not create backups. It was not fun, to say the least.

What worries me is that the auto text, in the same book was working and all of the sudden, it begun displaying [Undefined Value]. Tomorrow I will try to re-install Plotmaker or copy the file to another "box" and see what develops.

Thanks for trying.

Get 8.1 ASAP. Works good.

However, still shows extensions ...
