Way to replace Envelope template?

Is there a way to replace the envelope template used in the Tools =>
Envelopes and Labels command?

I like being able to select an address in the letter and having it
automatically entered into the Delivery address portion of the dialog box of
Tools => Envelopes and Labels. I also like having the option of turning on
and off barcodes when needed. But I have some graphics I'd like to print as
part of the return address. Messing around with bookmarks and the {BARCODE}
field is a bit of a chore. Any ideas or hints would be appreciated.

See http://www.gmayor.com/changing_envelope_layout.htm ,
http://www.gmayor.com/Alternative_Return_Addresses.htm and
http://www.gmayor.com/Macrobutton.htm for some suggestions. There are some
example templates on my web site, including a bar coded one. But these do
not use the envelope/label wizard.

Thanks Graham. I see you use TNT Screen Capture. Nice little utility. What,
no sparkle on the mouse cursor?

The second link you provided might yield something interesting (though I've
bookmarked 'em all for future reference). My initial impression is that I
might not be able to do what I want; Word might be limiting me too much. But
attitudes like that have never stopped me before!

I use SnagIt for the screen capture on my web site.

Hmm. Now I wonder which product came up with the torn edge look first (not
to mention the 3D shadow effect). I should have noticed TNT has a rougher
tear at the upper right. ShagIt's on the other hand has more of a straight
tear. Oh well ... yet another unanswered question in my mynd to keep me
awake at nights.
