    Signature

    I own both Woody teaches Office 2000 and Special Edition Using Microsoft Office 2000 with Ed Bott. somewhere in one of the books Woody tells you how to scan in your signature and then insert it in a word document. I would like to be able to do that. Can someone tell where it is in either of the books or baring that can you tell how to do it?

    Re: Signature

    Well, here's, like, the no-glamour way to do it:

    Sign your name in dark ink on a piece of paper. Scan the sig to a file named sig.tif. You can do .bmp, gif, or whatever format suits you; but tiff in two color (b&w) makes a pretty small file. So are .bmp in two color.

    Insert that picture into your document: Insert>Picture>From File. There you go.

    Re: Signature

    ...and a nifty trick to add to that:
    Select the graphic (single click),
    Tools/AutoCorrect
    Your 'signature' should now be in the 'With' field.
    Enter something like sig in the 'Replace' field.
    Click add.
    Now, all you have to do is type 'sig' and your signature is there.

    Once you have the scan, format it and size it in a graphics software package if you can. Word can do this, but isn't ideal for it.

    Once you have the picture in your document, if it isn't already sized, size it. Then you can Format it to be behind text (no wrapping). This way if you put it in a signature block, it won't block out the typing with white space.

    Also, when it's done, perhaps the signature should be posted here, just to ensure it's been done correctly- with credit card numbers please.[img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
