    Pictures appear as a cross (2002 sp3)

    A colleague has an image in a Word document appearing as a cross in a box, both on screen and when printed. The same document loads OK on other PCs. The image is embedded in the document.

    I cannot find the setting to display the picture correctly. We have already turned off the setting Tools > Options > View > Pictureplaceholders

    This sounds like the "red X" problem that used to be mentioned all the time here on the Word board. Try searching with the phrase "red X" and see whether that turns up the solution.

    The search suggested by Jefferson should turn up lots of threads here. You'll also find some tips in The graphics in my document have turned into red X's on the Word MVP site and in MSKB article Picture is displayed as a red X in a Word 2002 document.
