Images don't display on the screen In Word

by nathalievvt / April 2, 2007 5:26 AM PDT

None of my images display on Print View on screen, all I see is a rectangle and I can't even change the size. But they print ok.
What can I do to make them appear again?

It's version dependent indeed, so different in 2000 (which I had before me when I wrote my above post) and 2003. gives an example of the 2003 options. There you should UNCHECK the 'picture placeholders" box. This is the explanation:
"Displays an empty box in place of each graphic in your document. Increases the speed at which you can scroll through and display a document that contains many graphics. If not pictures can always be viewed from print preview."

Hope this helps.
