Re: Automatically inserting resized captures into MS Word document

There is an option to auto-scale captured images, under Capture Settings button - Crop & Scale. However not sure if scaling will be the best option - you'll lose some image detail, and it may be noticeable when the document is printed, or viewed on very high resolution monitors. It's probably better to insert original image, and resize it smaller inside MS Word, e.g. by dragging the corner handles, or setting scaling in Image Properties. That way the document will have all the pixels to use when rendering to high resolution devices.
In HyperSnap 8 there are options to send any keys you want with automatic paste. It could be even a complex command to select the just pasted image, open it's properties and set scale.You may access this from Capture Settings - Copy & Print tab, enable Copy and "Paste to" options, then choose "Advanced: Send custom Paste keys". Then click "Edit Paste keys" button, where you may enter any keys you want. Press the Help button there to read the documentation on this feature. It's very powerful, even has commands to add delays, expand macros, produce beeps etc.
Not sure though how to access the "Image size and position" or "Layout" dialog box in MS Word from the keyboard, normally I use right-click on a selected image... Select just pasted image is easy - after the paste key (Shift-Insert for example) send Shift + Left Arrow. If you discover a keyboard combination to do this, please share. Otherwise, to resize the image to your preferred relative size, maybe you could write a Word macro, assign it a keyboard shortcut, and then invoke it by sending the keys for your macro shortcut.
