Default Option "Show picture placeholders" only works for inline pictures?? Fix?


Hi there,

In my experience, Word gets very slow for documents with many pictures. Therefore, I was happy to find the option the option "Show picture placeholders" (in the Advanced Options), which replaces pictures with placeholders to speed up display rendering.

However, it seems that this only works for pictures which are in-line with text. Floating pictures are NOT repaced by a placeholder even when the options is on. This obviously defeats the purpose.

Does anybody know a fix for the problem?

Thanks a lot!

PS: It also doesn't work for pictures which are placed inside a text box, even if the text box is set to be in line with the text.

Hi Matt,

That is how all Word versions work and there's no 'fix'. For floating pictures, you could uncheck the 'Show drawings and textboxes on screen' option, but this hides them (and textboxes) completely.

Well, that's just ridiculous (I'm not criticising you, but Microsoft, of course). Does anybody know a workaround? Maybe a macro to replace pictures by placeholders? I'll think about the possibility of writing something like that, but I imagine it requires quite some work.
