Default Picture duplicates in print preview and save as PDF

Hi everyone,

I was wondering whether anyone can help me with an issue I am having with MS Word. I am just about to submit my final PhD thesis, however, when I go to print the document or even convert it to PDF, an image is duplicated and moves around the page.

I have (hopefully) attached a before and after image to this thread to give you an idea.

Unfortunately, after searching online the only possibility I can find is that it is corrupt. I was hoping there was an easier fix because it will be a long process of copying and pasting bits of the document, reorganising the references, heading styles, etc.

I have tried changing the type of image, JPG, PNG inserting as a grouped object directly from powerpoint. This doesn't solve it.

I would be grateful if anybody has any suggestions.

Thanks

Joe

It looks as though you may have the wrap set at something other than in line. Change the wrap to In line and centre the pictures using paragraph formatting.

The fact there's so much layout change - as well as the image duplication - suggests there's content preceding the pages in your screenshots that is suppressed until you do a print. Conversely, the radical change in overall page count suggests document corruption.

For the latter, you probably wouldn't need to endure "long process of copying and pasting bits of the document, reorganising the references, heading styles, etc." Rather, corrupt documents can often be 'repaired' by inserting a new, empty, paragraph at the very end, copying everything except that new paragraph to a new document based on the same template (headers & footers for the last Section may need to be copied separately), closing the old document and saving the new one over it.

Thanks for getting back to me on this, the help is really appreciated.

If it was the former, and there was content suppressed causing the image to move and duplicate, how would I locate this content to check if this is the problem?

The radical change in page number is probably caused my computer not updating the page count correctly before I have taken the screenshot. The page count does count the pages correctly after a short while.

Simply navigate back though the document & PDF till you find the point where they diverge.

Great news!

I have fixed the error. I think it was something to do with the cross referencing for Fig. 24. Simply removing this and re-referencing it and inserting the image again has solved it!

Thanks for all your suggestions.

Cheers

Joe
