I would like to have the plan set group name in an info stamp similar to the way the page name info stamp "@PG_TITLE" works.  But I can't seem to figure out what the command would be.  Anyone know how to make this work?

Can you give an example of what the end result would look like?

so the first one is the raw border, with the info stamps indicated.  

 

The second is the result... The page title is pulled from the plan set, but the group name from the plan set is not pulled.  I have tried "@group_title" and @group_name" as well, neither have pulled the plan set group names, they just show the literal text.

As far as i know, you can ONLY use stamps that exist. You can't design your own.

There are ones that are not included in the list, such as "@date_short"  I am hoping there is a way to connect to the plan set group title.  Or, in 2022, there is now the user defined info stamps, but I don't know how those work...

"@date_short" is in the list - 2nd from the top ...

 

The User Defined Stamps use a Phrase that you define in the PROJECT or DRAWING Options. Again, as far as I'm aware, you can't make it PULL from a field like a database. You Just define the word/phrase that you want it to use.

Huh.  The list in my program doesn't show that one...  The existing info stamps are pulling from a database, in fact, when you generate a drawings schedule, the group titles are included in the schedule.
