In the Oz (Australian) version it is located under the Text tool

As a guess your version will be the same.

You'll need to add it to the Workspace using the workspace editor. By default in the US versions, the number stamp tool is not part of the workspace.

I use the US version, I couldn't find the number stamp tool in the workspace editor, I tried everywhere. I use the architect version, not the renderworks version, can that be a problem.

In the help section it says call tool selector as -229

please help

Try this: open the workspace editor; click on the "tools" tab at the top of the editor window; click on the "all tools" triangle in the left hand part of the editor window; scroll down the alphebetical list until you find "numberstamp" (it looks a little like a baby's pacifier); go to the right hand part of the editor window and click on the "2d tools" triangle; now grab the numberstamp from the left hand side and drag it over into the 2d list at the right hand side. By moving (dragging) it around within the right hand side you can either put it in its own box, or within another box (under other tools). Hope that works for you :-)
