    Pics not printing (Word 2000)

    I copied some pics into a Word document. There they are, bright and shiny, but when I print the document all I get is blank pages!

    Any idea what would cause this?

    Thanks

    The first thing I would do is to check Tools/Options on the print tab to make sure that 'Draft output' is NOT checked and that 'Drawing objects' IS checked.

    Good luck,

    Are they actually links to pictures on the web? If so, try converting them to pictures (select and press Ctrl+Shift+F9 to convert INCLUDEPICTURE or EMBED fields to pictures).

    Hi,

    Have you checked your printer settings? This would be especially relevant if the problem started after a new printer was installed or the existing settings were changed. If either of these is the case, check options for changing output formats (eg RAW vs whatever), or doing things like printing graphics as raster vs vector, and printing truetype as graphics, etc. I seem to recall having encountered/resolved graphics problems in one or more of these areas in the past.

    Cheers

    Can you get any graphics out if you choose to print only one page?

    When you say they are bright and shiny, I hope you don't mean they are white and sitting on a dark background.
