2. The Word Workspace > 10. Browse All Button Images

Browse All Button Images

When you start adding buttons or menus to a document or template, it would be nice to have more than a few button images to choose from. This hack shows you how to browse all the button images available on your system.

Customized toolbars and menus can be easier to work with when they’re labeled with meaningful images. You can modify most toolbar buttons (both custom and built-in) when you open the Customize dialog (select ToolsCustomize). But when you right-click a button and choose Change Button Image, you’re presented with a pretty limited selection, as shown in Figure 2-23.

The selection of available button images seems quite limited

In addition to this modest assortment, Microsoft Office includes more than 4,000 button images, or faces, that you can use or adapt as needed. Unfortunately, these poorly documented buttons can be difficult to access without using VBA code (and even then, it helps if you know the face ID number of the image).
