Microsoft Word 2007: Save Picture formatting in a paragraph style



I want to apply certain characteristics to all images in my document: the
same picture format, a keep with next for the paragraph, and so on. In other
words, I want to apply a paragraph style to images. Is that possible?

If you are inserting the images inline, you can certainly define a paragraph
style to be used for them.

Thanks kindly for the quick response, Suzanne. The problem is that I cannot
get the same formatting options for graphics on a standard paragraph style,
at least that I can see. For example, if I apply a border directly to the
graphic, it looks great. But when I try to create a border style for the
paragraph, the options are much fewer and the border doesn't size itself to
the graphic.


Clarification: If you double-click an image you get a wonderful set of
"Picture Styles" that show the picture with different frames, border types,
orientation, and so on. I would like to create a style called "Standard Pic"
or whatever. When I applied the style to it, the Picture Style would be
applied automatically along with the standard paragraph attributes such as
indent, spacing after and so on.

Re: No, that can't be incorporated in a paragraph style.

Can it be done some other way.. I have a similar situation. I have 50 pictures and I want to be able to use a standard style or use find/replace to change all picture formatting.
