Text inserted as Variable

Post by kohledfusion » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:29 pm

Aloha Gents,

Is it possible to use the following items as a variable that we could insert in drawings?

* author name
* current time/date
* sheet scale

I'm envisioning putting a variable in as formattable text, (such as $author, $time.hhmm and $date.mmddyyyy) that I can embed in my titleblock. They would change dynamically every time the file is opened or touched by another user.

A variable for scale would be very helpful so we don't have to manually edit scale text when we switch scale. ex:
FIRST FLOOR PLAN - SCALE: $scale.ffi
(ffi = fractional feet & inches)

Thanks for humoring me yet again.
