Secrets of the Office Masters: Using AutoCorrect to Add a Scanned Signature to Word Documents

If you have a scanner, it takes only a few minutes to set up an AutoCorrect entry that will replace the text you type in Word with a scanned image of your signature. For example, you can have Word replace the text mysig with a scanned image of your signature. A signature slug can be useful for “signing” daily correspondence, and it's indispensable if you want to sign a fax that is sent out electronically.

Start by scanning the signature into a Word document by choosing Insert, Picture, From Scanner or Camera. Use your scanner's software to crop the image and insert it into the document. Select the scanned image and choose Tools, AutoCorrect. Make sure the Formatted Text button is selected, and type the text entry in the Replace box.
