Hi,

Is there a way to create a custom stamp in Acrobat XI so that it says “Obsolete” on the first line, and then the user’s name/date on the second line?

Thanks,
Joel

Isn't a stamp just an image? Create you required form in Photoshop or your editor of choice, then create a custom stamp using that image.

It's the same principle with the signatures: create an image that contains "Obsolete" and the user name, then the date will be added automatically.

HTH,
Dan

Thanks, the thing is we have several users and don't want to create 100 stamps.  So there's an "Approved" stamp and it automatically puts in the username and date.  I want to have a stamp like that but it will just say "Obsolete".

Btw, on that link it shows how to dynamically insert the time. If you need the user also, you can copy the code from the Dynamic.pdf file, which is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat\plug_ins\Annotations\Stamps\ENU.

If you can't find the file, the code is below:
event.value = (new Date()).toString();
AFDate_FormatEx("h:MM tt, mmm dd, yyyy");
event.value = "By " + ((!identity.name || identity.loginName != (event.source.source || this).Collab.user) ? (event.source.source || this).Collab.user : identity.name)
 + " at " + event.value;
