    Images not displaying (Word 2000)

    In a large document (60 pages) with many screenshots (about 95), Word has suddenly stopped displaying the images although the document loads without any difficulty and one can see the image placeholders. Can someone offer a solution?

    Many thanks,
    Ramdak

    Hi Ramdak:
    The first place I'd check is Tools/Options/View tab & see if "Picture placeholders" is ticked (the box should be unchecked). If that doesn't do it, post back.

    First, make sure that you haven't accidentally checked the Picture Placeholders option in Tools/Options... (View tab).

    If the problem persists, it may be a resources problem - not enough memory to display the screenshots. If the document has been saved after this problem occurred, it may have become corrupted. Some things to try:
    <UL><LI>Restart your computer. Make sure no applications are active, and clear the Temp folder. (It's a good idea to do this from time to time).
    <LI>Open the document in Word without having any other application open.
    <LI>Select an image placeholder, then select Format/Image..., Position tab, and toggle the Floating above Text property.
    <LI>Right click an image placeholder, select Edit, and close the picture.[/list]HTH, Hans

    Hi Phil,

    Thanks very much. Problem solved!

    Can't understand why or how I checked the Placeholders box, though.

    Thanks once again,
    Ramdak

    Hans, thanks to you too. I will save your detailed instructions. Who knows when I might need them.
