Hallo Clive,

Kind regards

Hi Joern

Currently there is no option in the printing preferences to plot/print a 'Plot Stamp' - to print the file-name, date, time etc...

You would need to use the Text tool (TE) to manually add text to your drawings, either anywhere in the drawing or you could use a title block/template including provision for such details.

A feature request has been added for this: ... ask_id=687

* There are some printers that do have a 'Plot Stamp' option, not sure which ones though!
