Microsoft Support states they have fixed the ScaleWidth bug with their Office SP1 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2460049/).

But my programmers have used the function in about 500 document templates and now they all stopped working. They were using:

Selection.ShareRange.ScaleWidth 1#, True

And now the images aren't scaled anymore.
Does anyone else have this problem or have a solution on how to fix this without reprogramming all the document templates or don't install SP1..

Looking in the VB Editor, it appears they may have changed that command. Try using:

Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth

Yeah, but that's the problem, if that's true we need to change all the 500 templates and I was looking for a way to save me the trouble / work of doing so.
