Default Graphic files do not appear in my document

Hello. How do I get a graphic(s) to appear in my document? I am using Word 2003 SP3. At the moment all I get is either a solid border around the insertion, or place holders, but no image.

I have had this behavior since Word 97 and with each upgrade I have the same situation. I have tried to delete and re-create normal.dot a number of times but its does not help. I have uninstalled Word - and MS Office - then reinstalled but I have the same situation.

The only time I can see the images is when I choose either Print Preview or View->Reading Layout. All other layouts just show the place holders (the document(s) show up fine on any other computer).



This is extremely frustrating as I am presently working on a user manual with around 50 inserted screen shots and I can't see the screen shots to write my explanations!

It must be a setting somewhere which gets carried over with each new installation.

Grateful for any assistance!

Go to:

Tools > Options > View (tab)

Make sure that in the Show group you have 'Picture placeholders' unchecked and in the Print and Web Layout options group you have 'Drawings' checked.

If these options are set and you STILL can't see the pictures, then the issue is with your display driver and you should see if there is an update, or if you are using the generic Windows driver, go search for one for your make and model of monitor.

Let me know if this fix works for you - I've come across this a few times now - and one of the two options has always fixed it (so far!).

Of course! The 'Picture Placeholders' option WAS checked but now everything is hunky dory!

Many thanks!
