The command stamp() applies a stamp named stampName to items, which may be a single note or a group or designator.

Prior to v8.1.0, the order of the arguments was reversed, i.e. stamp(stampName[,items]). The one-argument form stamp(name) still operates as before.


If item is omitted, the stamp stampName is applied to this note, i.e. the current note.

stamp() returns true if the stamp was found, and false otherwise.

stamp("Do Stuff"); 

runs the stamp called "Do Stuff".
