Default Image as Placeholder (Drop Zone)


I am trying to salvage some work my 86 year old Father has been doing on his Mac with Word 2011.

He has a huge MS-Word Document (couple of hundred pages, with over hundred photos)

Now many of those Photos have been scanned in again in a better quality, so the original images need to be replaced with a new copy, same size, same position. This is possible in Word using a so called DropZone, or Image Placeholder. See:

Now, I would like to run a small VBA Macro that sets this "PlaceHolder" Property for all images in the File, allowing them to be simply replaced by drag and drop (out of the MS-Word Media Browser).

Here´s my issue: I can't find the name of the OBJECT containing the PROPERTY to set.

Any idea?
