Hi everyone!

I need to apply size and position formatting to over 100 images in my Word document.  

I did this once before but can't remember the keyboard shortcut.  

The formatting I'm trying to copy and paste is as follows:

Height/Width 20%
Text Wrapping Tight
Horizontal Position: Absolute Position 5.25" to the right of margin
Vertical Position: Absolute Position 0" below Line

The format painter won't grab these formatting options.  I know there was a keyboard shortcut to copy.paste but I can't remember what it was.  

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.  Thanks!!!

I don't think you can do this with Word 2010 shortcuts.

You can record a macro and assign it to keys to do what you want. View tab, Macros button (right hand side), Record Macro. Press Keyboard button to assign shortcut key.

The documentation says Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl_Shift+V copies formatting but this only seems to work for text, not pictures.

THanks akb.  I ended up finding a workaround on another site.  Here's the text:
Add an image to your document by clicking Insert > Picture and then choosing a picture in the dialog box. Next, click the picture, select the Picture Tools tab, and choose Format. At this point you can adjust how the text should wrap around the picture, indicate whether the text appears on top of the picture, customize a border for the picture, or what have you.
Once you've applied formatting to your satisfaction, click the image to select it and choose Insert > Quick Parts > Save Selection to Quick Part Gallery. Type a name for the image, and choose to save it to the Quick Parts Gallery. Save it in your Building Blocks.dotx file, and click OK.
In the future, you can add this formatted image to a file by choosing Insert > Quick Parts and clicking the image. Then, to change it to the image you actually want in the document, right-click the image, choose Change Picture, and select the new image. The new image will appear in the existing border, thus saving you from having to reproduce the border (and other formatting) each and every time you add a picture to your document.

Also, after inserting the first quick part, I placed my cursor where I wanted the next picture to go and used F4 to repeat last action.  Did that 100 times then went back and changed the picture.  

That may have been what I did the first time a couple years ago.  Can't remember.  BUt anyway...
