We all know that the Find & Replace feature in Word is a lifesaver when we want to replace sizable amounts of text in Word quickly.
However, did you know that you can use the very same feature to replace all instances of an image in your document with another? Perhaps not. I would not call this a perfect solution because it will replace all images with the same image. BUT, if you have a company logo in a large document that has to be replaced, this tip will definitely make it a lot easier for you!
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Place your new image at the top of your document.
- Right-click it and select Copy.
- Delete the image.
- Click CTRL + H to open the Find & Replace tool.
- In the Find What area, key in ^g. (^ is found over the number 6 on your keyboard).
- In the Replace With field, key in ^c.
- Click Replace All.
- Click OK.
The ^g tells Word you are looking for graphics and ^c is your Clipboard, and it tells Word you want to replace all graphics with the last saved item on your Clipboard.
