Allow setting default template for Word Output to set Orientation to landscape for better capture Images

When outputting images to word they always come out better and larger when the orientation in Word is set to Landscape.  Every time I start a new doc I have to export an image, go into word and change the orientation, remove the first image and then re-send from this point.  It would be so much better to allow setting a template that already has word defaults such as the orientation for captures.  I was not able to find a way to set this using a profile

i haven't used Word for a long time but can't you re-define the Word "Normal" template to landscape orientation?  Then have a normal2 template in portrait mode for when you start a regular normal document.

That said, as a content creator myself, I try to avoid landscape mode especially if I am inserting Word text as well, because it's harder for users to assimilate text that is ton a wide page.  Portrait mode is much easier to read.  There's some science behind it but I can't recall where I saw it :)
