word wont show animations/pictures anymore

by Aliaz / November 20, 2004 2:38 PM PST

I have office 2003 and win xp (sp1)as my operating system. My problem is with my word. It won?t show any pictures anymore. If I scan from my scanner, or camera or even cut/copy from a website and paste on my Microsoft word the image won?t be pasted. Well actually it gets pasted but the picture appears blank. My word was working perfectly with no problems one week ago and no all of sudden I don?t know what has happened. Furthermore even the pictures and WebPages with pictures which I saved prior to this problem open up as blank now. The text appears normal and I have no other problem with any of my Microsoft office products. Please help and advice.

Make sure "Picture placeholders" is not checked on the View tab of Tools | Options.

I was having the same issue with picture placeholders being set to on, only thing is I never set it to on. Why would this happen?
