How do I add and customize toolbar icons for some existing Word 2013 macros, and those I will develop.

Is there a way to customize such icons?

Choose 'More Commands...' from the Quick Access Toolbar dropdown (in the Title bar). Select 'Macros' from the 'Choose Commands from' dropdown (near the top, left of the 'Word Options' window). Choose the macro and use the 'Add>>' button to move it to the right-hand list.

You can change the icon image by selecting the macro in the right-hand list and clicking on the 'Modify...' button.

Great!  That worked.

Now, regarding the 2nd part of the question, how do I customize/edit the icon image similar to the way I was able to do with Word 2003 under XP.

Thanks.

I've modified the secondary question, and will be posting very quickly it in a new thread - same zones.
