    Graphics in Word97 (Word97 SR-2b)

    Word documents with inserted graphics . Graphics will only appear as outlines with large red X in place of actual graphics (Also prints like this too). Cannot find means of putting back to normal display. It's probably a pretty fundamental setting. Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

    There is an extensive article about this issue on the Microsoft Knowledge base: Q162349

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/ar...s/Q162/3/49.asp

    Basically: Get to sr-1 & better sr-2
    But that won't alter existing docs.
    The objects are still there. Select the object, do copy & paste into an image editor. Delete the object in word and recopy/paste from the image editor.
    But do this on 97/sr-1 ot 2 else the Big Red X can return.

    Tools, Options, under "View" tab, uncheck "Picture Placeholders"?

    The solution was even simpler than that. The guy had removed his c:temp directory. I put it back and lo and behold all the graphics displayed again. Ref MS Technet Q162349

    Thanks
