"Insert this drawing 'stamp' at 0,0. It will display the current date, time, file name, etc. It can be exploded and edited to suit any user. This is a very useful stamp! We use it when issuing drawings so that we know if it is the most current drawing that is being used in the field, especially if the drawing hasn't been 'red-stamped' with type of issue and date."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: This drawing is an Rtext object that can be inserted anywhere in your drawing. As is, it will display the current month, day, year, time, and file path of the drawing. The drawing is an Rtext object set to display this information of the current drawing. It would be a good idea to place this object in your title block file or template.
Rtext, often called Remote text, is a type of graphical object in AutoCAD that shows text either by referring to an external text file or by interpreting a diesel expression stored in the Rtext. You can reference files outside of AutoCAD, like notes, or you can use diesel expressions to display drawing information. Displaying file information is easy enough to do. You can use Rtext, as shown here, or you can use Fields. Rtext means you have to know how to write diesel expressions, Fields mean you simply pick from a list of possible choices. Both will get the job done.
