    Only seeing Clip Art Thumbnails as Icons (2003)

    I upgraded my PC with Office 2003 and now when I go to clip art I can only see for each element an icon where the thumbnail was. Is there a setting I can tweak? The same happens in Publisher. This is most bogus.

    I don't have Office 2003 loaded for comparison. Does it have this option, and is it "on"?

    Tools > Options... > View > Picture Placeholders

    Were the graphics actually embedded or were they linked in from the web? If the latter, perhaps links are not updating automatically at open?

    No, it's not placeholders. This is before the graphic is selected, whilst you're browsing for them in Insert|Picture|Clip Art...

    What I think it may be is that O2003 has the capability to go to an MS site for clip art. If you select that, it goes there first, but doesn't show the actual image, just an icon.

    Could it be that the clip art normally included with Office isn't included in the "pre-release" version? I think in the past they had it on a separate CD. But that's a hazy memory at this point.

    No, the problem was that the clip art I have was not in the place O2003 expected to find it. So, it first went to the MS site on the web and got art by keyword (as I requested). That art is only shown as a standard icon with a globe in the bottom left corner.

    After I rescanned for clip art, all went back to normal. Took a while.
