When you open a drawing it gives me the warning that this drawing was created with an educational version of the AutoCAD software.
When you plot a drawing that was created in or that contains drawing data that was created in the Educational (Student and Faculty) version of AutoCAD or AutoCAD-based software, the following plot stamp or watermark appears in the plot: For Educational Use Only
There are two elegant ways I have discovered to remove the "educational stamp" from AutoCAD.
Option 1 : In AutoCAD 2000 only, on the pull-down click, File > Recover and then save - The stamp is removed. This option does not work for later versions of AutoCAD.
Option 2 : Download CADopia (the new name for Intellicad). on the pull down click File > Recover and then save - the stamp is thus removed.
This is not a licence to keep on using the educational version, if you are using it please stop! We all hate it when someone sends us files that have the educational stamp!!

E-book: AutoCAD Block Best Practices
We draw repetitively when using AutoCAD. If we manage the drawing elements as reusable contents, it will increase our productivity significantly.
Not only can we draw faster, we can add information to our blocks. Which allows us to generate useful reports. This is what Edwins e-book entitled
