Plotmaker -Date Printed when plotting or printing

Anonymous
Not applicable
Is there a way to have plotmaker print the date when printed and possibly the source of the file on the edge of the sheet every time one plots or prints from plotmaker? I have discovered how you do this in Archicad but not in Plotmaker.

Just put the right autotext on your master sheet. You can insert it into a text area using the Edit > Autotext > and select from the popup list or you can type the placeholder text directly (once you know what it is).

ArchiBen,

Thank you for this opportunity to better my standing in the ArchiCAD-Talk community. To help accelerate my status change, I have decided to answer your question with individual emails detailing each of the twenty-or-so AutoText options that are available. I will then re-post every one of those emails in the "Installation / New User" and "Other Problems" forums. After that, I'm sure Djordje will repost all of them in the "Tips and Tricks" forum. Soon I shall join the ranks of "Active Member"!

i'll look forward to them . . .

and maybe next: what's the pet-palette?

Pet=small animal
Palette= Shovel (see the thread about AC9 screen shots)

This means pet-palette must be the small shovel you use when getting rid of the small piles of something your animal sometimes leaves behind in inappropriate locations!
