    Formatting pasted Screenshot (Word 2000)

    Our procedure manual is a compilation from several sources of screenshots captured with PrintScreen and then pasted into the Word doc. How can we resize all the screenshots quickly? Is there a process similar to using the format painter for text? We know about formatting the picture by size/% but that would mean manually resizing each shot. Thanks!

    If your pictures are in-line, rather than floating in the drawing layer, you can use my global resizer:
    <pre>Sub ShrinkPic()
    ' Created 8/22/00 to resize all graphics in a document at once
    If ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.Count = 0 Then
    MsgBox ("No ''inline'' pictures to resize in this document.")
    Exit Sub
    End If

    If MsgBox("Do you want to resize ALL the inline picture graphics in this document?", _
    vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then Exit Sub

    Dim iShape As InlineShape, fPct As Single

    fPct = Val(InputBox("Enter new scaling factor, relative to current size (e.g., ", _
    "Resize pictures", " 0.80"))

    For Each iShape In ActiveDocument.InlineShapes
    If iShape.Type = wdInlineShapePicture Then
    iShape.Height = fPct * iShape.Height
    iShape.Width = fPct * iShape.Width
    End If
    Next
    End Sub</pre>

    I should have told you I'm a novice! How do I enter this? And, how do I know if graphics are in-line, rather than floating in the drawing layer? Thanks again - <img src=/S/broke.gif border=0 alt=broke width=31 height=23>

    Good questions. I described one quick way to save a macro posted here on the lounge in Post #112915. As for whether pictures are inline or floating, you can tell from the Layout tab of the Format Picture dialog (usually available when you right-click the picture, or from the bottom of the Format menu).

    Another way to tell whether graphics are inline or floating is to select it & look at the handles (the 8 sizing boxes that are located at the corners & midpoints). If they are black solid squares, the graphic is inline; if they are black boxes with white background, they are floating.

    Cheers,

    Re: Formatting pasted Screenshot (Word 2000)

    1st question answered - shots are in-line, not floating. (executing your tips I discovered when I click on image if it is floating the cross symbol indicating "move" apears - otherwise, no symbol!)

    Now - how do I post the "code?" you provided for resizing all graphics at one time?

    Sorry - forgot to tell you that when I go to the ref you provided for a previous lounger, the following is what I come to -- Re: Track changes - accept (97 - SR1) Post: 112915 re: 112843 from jacksonmacd - not about resizing graphics. Did I miss something?

    Yes. Copy the macro that Jefferson posted for you. Then go to the post regarding track changes. The only purpose for going there is to see the steps that were listed for creating a macro. Don't use the code for track changes. Just use the steps, but paste the macro for resizing graphics.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Formatting pasted Screenshot (Word 2000)

    Wanted to thank you for your input on resizing screenshots in one step. We tested this on a smaller doc and it looks like we got it! We did have to play a bit with it since we are such novices but the instrucs were so clear! Thanks again!
