Dynamic Text (Using variables in stamp content)

When you are working with documents, there is a lot of information that varies from document to document — dates, times, filenames, etc. Even within a document there are things that change from page to page, such as page numbers or headers and footers. PDF Stamp software provides a large series of variables that access this dynamic information and stamp it into your document.

Note: All variables must be preceded by the slash (\) character. If the \ character is missing, the variable name will appear in the stamped text. If you want to use the \ character in a stamp it must be listed in the stamp file as \\.

Below is a table of all variables available showing the variable name, what it does, and an example.
