Can I set default insert picture settings in a template? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way i can set the default text wrap settings in my word 2010 template so that when i insert a picture it will automatically choose "square" with "alignment: left" and  "distance from text" set to "left 0.13" and "right 0.13"?

  • In either a AutoNew macro or a Document_New macro in the template put the following command.

        Word.Options.PictureWrapType = wdWrapMergeSquare

    Hope this helps

  • Thank you for the tip. I looked into following your instructions, however, unfortunately, word 2010 help is poor in describing how to create autonew macro. Would you mind providing detailed step-by-step instructions how to do this?

    Using word 2010, the best i could figure out is that under the developer tab, i select "visual basic editor", but i was lost after that --or-- i click "macros" but i was lost trying to figure out that dialog as well.
