I'm running Windows XP with Word 2003. I'm having a problem with autotext. I have several formats saved, such as HOME and when I type HOME, a prompt comes on the screen and I press ENTER and my address is put into the Word document. I also have an auto text entry with a text item and alongside I have a Logo, when I type in the name, the prompt appears, I press ENTER and its all in the document. BUT I have scanned my sinature and called it SIGNATURE, but when I type SIGNATURE there is no prompt. I can press F3 after I type SIGNATURE and it puts my signature into the document. Any Ideas
Start Word and in the NEW document select insert menu>Picture>From file, and insert your jpeg "signature". The file will appear in the document. Click on the jpeg and it will be highlighted with a black line and 8 blocks around the jpeg. Select Tools menu (while the jpeg is still highlighted)and Auto correct. In the box to replace, type in signature. In the box for With: leave it blank but make sure "Formatted text" is enabled. Click on add and then OK. The next time you type "signature"(without the brackets) the jpeg of your signature will appear in the document....TT
Spotted the thread. I have done this before in Word 97 and I have 2002 now. So I`ll play about with it later and post back the answer as I see it. Something strikes a chord here and pressing F3 afterwards is a compromise I think!
