    Using Autotext to insert a graphic (Word 2003)

    I have created an autotext to insert a graphic I often need in documents. What I can't get it to do is insert using the name I gave the autotext. Usually when I type the name, I get a autocomplete box and I can hit enter. Is there any way to get that for a graphic? My goal is to have do that or find another way to insert the graphic with a keystroke or 2 instead of having to go through all the toolbar steps to insert it. Thanks for any help.

    Apparently Word does not "preview" images saved as AutoText entries. However, if the first few letters are unique, you can type those letters and press F3 to insert the AutoText entry, even without the prompt.
