Is there an easier way to remove this plot stamp?

Asked by Pazza (3179points) March 16th, 2010

I’m currently using Autocad 2008, one of my works colleagues received an emailed drawing that was created with an educational version of Autocad. Any time you ‘cut & paste’ or use the drawing to make another, you inherit the plot stamp.

I’ve been on numerous forums, and no one really has a quick fix.
The only way I’ve figured out how to get rid of it is to save the file in DXF format, rename it as a .TXT file, cut and paste the contents into a fresh .TXT file, and then rename it as .DXF and re-open it with Autocad.

Suffice to say that this method is as long winded as the above paragraph.

Does anybody have a quick fix?

I don’t know much about AutoCAD, but I’m guessing that you have the professional version. If so, I would mess around with the settings, preferences, views, etc. Maybe this item is in a hidden format, similar to MS Word’s header and footer sections.

Why didn’t you just edit the save as* option before exiting the project. I’ve used Autocad only a numerous amount of times, but i can tell you that you can make an *.exe script to do that process that you have repetitively continued. email me a couple of screen shots to mrgrimm.webs@hotmail.com and i’ll see what i can do
