Automatic Logo Replacement

Automatic logo replacement lets you select a logo to be placed in you generated documents. Unlike merging images, you only need to upload the logo image file once, after which you can place it in all your documents as many times as you want.

There are two ways to automatically place your logo in your generated documents, using picture content controls or bookmarks. Both methods follow the same steps as merging an image into a document from an Image Upload Field, shown here

 

Uploading a logo

Before using either logo replacement method, you will need to upload the desired logo into the Rulestar builder. This is the logo that you want to be inserted into your generated documents, Doing so is easy - in the Rulestar builder:

  1. Click on "Companies" tab
  2. Select the company to upload a logo.
  3. Select "Styling".
  4. Under "Images" locate the logo upload field.
  5. Either drag and drop the logo into the builder or browse your device for the logo.

 

Picture Content Controls

Picture content controls are the recommended method for placing a logo in your documents, as they are more robust, flexible and searchable than bookmarks. You can also repeat the same control throughout a document whereas this is not the case for bookmarks.

To insert a picture content control in your template:

  1. Navigate to the "Developer" on the MS Word ribbon.
  2. In the "Controls" group, select "Picture Content Control".
  3. Click "Properties" and change the title of the picture content control to "CompanyLogo_Replacement"
  4. Adjust the size and placement of the picture content control to match where the logo should be placed. For more information on how to adjust the size and placement of images in your document, please click here.

You can copy and paste the picture content control in as many places in your template as you like.

Bookmarks

The second method of adding a logo to your documents is using bookmarks. This involves inserting a 'placeholder' image into the Word document:

  1. Insert a placeholder image into your template, either by copying and pasting it or by navigating to the "Insert" tab of the of MS Word ribbon and selecting "Pictures" from within the "Illustrations" group. As this is a placeholder image, it can be any image.
  2. Adjust the size and placement of the picture content control to match where the logo should be placed. For more information on how to adjust the size and placement of images in your document, please click here.
  3. Add a bookmark around the image by navigating to the "Insert" tab and selecting "Bookmark". A dialogue box will open.
  4. Name the bookmark "CompanyLogo_Replacement" and click "Add".
  5. If you wish to add multiple logos using bookmarks, repeat steps 1-4 with an additional underscore (_) after the name of the bookmark. For example, the name of the second bookmark should be "CompanyLogo_Replacement_" and the third should be "CompanyLogo_Replacement__" and so on.
