Creating a custom dynamic stamp

I’ve had a tip on creating a custom dynamic stamp posted since the release of Acrobat 6. However, I continue get additional questions on configuration, different versions, when to place the dynamic content, etc. I’ve updated the written tip to include Acrobat 6, 7, and 8 configuration and I’ve just added a brief video presentation to demonstrate the steps.
Look for more interactive tips in coming weeks, and if you have a suggestion for a tip, let me know.

    Hi,

    I just bought Acrobat 8 standard and realised that i am unable to make my own custom dynamic stamp. I used my friend’s computer which had the professional version and followed through your video. Dynamic stamp is created but when i copy the file back to my PC, the time is not updated. Is there a workaround for this? Else, is there other ways i can create dynamic stamp using my standard version of acrobat?

    Thanks,
    Kent

    Kent;

    I was having the same problem and figured out away around this. Once you have successfuly completed your custom dynamic stamp in Adobe Professional, you can save it in another location.

    In adobe 8 Standard create a custom stamp (it does not matter what it is). Locate the newly created stamp in your application data folder. Once you have located the new stamp, copy the entire file name.

    Paste the Adobe 8 standard file name over the saved version of the dynamic stamp you had created in Adobe Professional. Take this newly named custom dynamic stamp and copy and paste it back into the Adobe 8 standard directory. It will ask you if you want to copy over the orginial, and obviously say yes.

    This worked for me. I guess it’s kind of like tricking the program into thinking you have created it.
