Inserting automatic file name, date and time in Illustrator CS3?

  1. Default Inserting automatic file name, date and time in Illustrator CS3?

    hello all,

    is there an option in Illustrator where you could automatically insert inside your file the file name, date and time where it was last created or modified, etc.

    I found this option to exist in InDesign, but could not find the same menu in Illustrator. I am using CS3.

    help?

    thanks a bunch.

    Mario,

    would you please be so kind to include a reference on your site about the script? As far as I can see, the PutDateandTime.js you are providing here is a copy or a slightly modified copy of the original script that Wolfgang Reszel has provided on our site for about four years.

    It is okay that the script is available on your site, but please not without a reference. Thanks.

    The script named InsertName&Date contained in the .zip archive on this page <http://www.illustrationetc.com/AI_Javascripts/LabelScripts.htm> inserts the file name, current date, and timestamp at the cursor position in any textFrame object.
