    Is there a way to define the default behaviour of an image I insert into Word? It's always inline with text and I want it to be "top and bottom", centered horizontaly and not moving with the text. The way it is now, I have to right-click every image after inserting it, go to "Format Picture" choose Advanced on the Layout tab, choose my settings... A pain, to cut a long story short. Can anyone help?

    TIA,
    Nash

    Hi Nash,

    You can set "top and bottom" as default:
    - Select Tools | Options..
    - Activate the Edit tab.
    - Select the "Top and bottom" option from the "Insert/paste pictures as" dropdown.
    - Click OK.

    The other settings have to be applied each time, as far as I know. You could create a macro in your Normal.dot template and assign it to a custom toolbar button and/or keyboard shortcut, so that you can easily apply it.

    The macro could look like this:

    Code:
    Sub FixPicture()
      With Selection.ShapeRange
        .WrapFormat.Type = wdWrapTopBottom
        .Left = wdShapeCenter
        .LockAnchor = False
        .RelativeHorizontalPosition = wdRelativeHorizontalPositionColumn
        .RelativeVerticalPosition = wdRelativeVerticalPositionPage
      End With
    End Sub
    You have to select the picture before running the macro.

    I looked at the Edit tab, but obviously not carefully enough... And thanks for the macro, HansV I'm quite good with VBA in Excel, but haven't tried my hand in Word. Thanks again.
    Cheers,
    Nash
