    Scanning into Word (Word 2007)

    Hello; I'm just about to get a new Gateway FX530 with Vista Premium Home and Office Basic 2007 which includes Word 2007. All in one printer is a Canon PIXMA MP160. Is it possible to scan a page into Word so that the logo on it can be typed around to avoid overlaps with the text? If so, how do I go about getting from the scanner to storing the page as a document in Word so that I can use it repeatedly as a template, to avoid overlapping the printing and the logo on the page? Word 2007 will be new to me, but I'd think that there ought to be a way to do this. All pages from #2 on will be on plain paper. It is rather a bother to have to guess about where to begin writing on the page if the logo can't be seen. I hope that this makes sense; it will be a great help to have some pointers on how to do this.Thanks in advance for your help.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Scan the page to a graphics file (.tif, .bmp, .jpg, .png). If necessary, crop it to just the logo in your favorite graphics editor - Paint will do.

    I don't have Office 2007 yet, so the following description is based on earlier versions of Word. The ribbon equivalents in Word 2007 are no doubt slightly different.

    Create a blank new document in Word.
    Select File | Page Setup...
    Activate the Layout tab.
    Tick the check box labeled Different first page.
    Click OK.
    Select View | Header and Footer.
    Select Insert | Picture | From File..
    Insert the scanned image.
    Select the image, then select Format | Picture...
    Activate the Layout tab.
    Select Square.
    Click OK.
    Position the logo where you want it.
    Click Close in the Header and Footer toolbar.
    Select File | Save As...
    Select Document Template (*.dot) as file type.
    Enter a name, and click Save.

    Hello Hans, Thanks for the reply. I hope that late next week when the new system gets to me I'll be able to try it out. Sounds like it ought to be pretty straightforward. Have a good week. Chuck.
