I wish to at the prefix "Scale" infront of the actual scale value when placed in the drawing

How do I do this in the Stamp menu / INI file?

Regards, Eugene

Somewhere there is a past post by Mark or Dave that really explains this good, but from the Rev History File, this might help:
New Features and Enhancements in DataCAD 13.03.02 (Since DataCAD 13.02.00):
2) There is a new Plot Scale stamp (@PLOTSCALE) which allows for multiple variations. The following are examples of entries added to the [Stamp] section on the INI file:

PLOTSCALE_1MenuText=Plot Scale 1
PLOTSCALE_1=Scale: @PLOTSCALE = 1'-0"
PLOTSCALE_2MenuText=Plot Scale 2
PLOTSCALE_2=This is the current plot scale: @PLOTSCALE

I know I can have a stamp with the full path
Code: Select allDwgPath=@DWGPATH
; Drawing File Path (i.e., C:\Program Files\DataCAD\Drawings\Project#\)

Is there a @DWG??? that would give me only the last/current directory, i.e. Project#, only?
