I'm upgrading some custom templates/macros from Word 2000 to Word 2010. There are custom icons that are embedded in the .dot template files. I'd like to use those same icons for my new Ribbon - does anyone know how to extract the icons from the old .Dot file?

You can open the .dot files by using a zip extraction program such as 7-zip.

In there you will find the icon files.
