Removing the Logo
So, a couple weeks ago, I wrote a tip about putting a logo on your envelopes. Specifically, you learned how to add a logo, graphic or text that would appear on all of your MS Word envelopes.
Unfortunately, I didn’t address how to undo them, should you change your mind.
First, if you don’t want something on a single envelope, you should be able to select it and simply delete it.
Now, for the subject, we really need to address permanently removing the information from your Word envelopes.
Basically, you need to remove the EnvelopeExtra1 AutoText/Quick Parts entry.
If you’re using Word 2007, you need to remove a Quick Parts entry.
- To do that, you need the Insert tab on the ribbon, Quick Parts button, Building Blocks Organizer choice.
- From the list, locate EnvelopeExtra1, select it and then click on the Delete button.
- If you need to, click on the title of the Name column and Word will sort the entries alphabetically. Besides scrolling through the really long list, you can use the E key repeatedly to cycle through all the entries that begin with an “e.”
- After you click on the Delete button, Word will ask you to confirm your decision.
- Click on the Close button to return to your document.
- Start with the Insert menu, AutoText submenu, AutoText choice (at the very top).
- That should open the AutoCorrect dialogue window, already on the AutoText tab.
- In the “Enter AutoText entries here” field, put in EnvelopeExtra1. That should bring it up without you having to scroll through the long list.
- Once you can see it in the list, select it and then click on the Delete button.
- Click OK to leave the AutoCorrect dialogue window.
Voila! Any new envelope will start out completely blank. It’s just like you never had an EnvelopeExtra1!
