    Images not appearing in Normal View (2003)

    Hi,

    I have seen this on 2 machines now. When I insert image, from file or clip art, it is just a box outline in normal or layout view. Wehn i go to print preview then I see the image. This is only in WORD and only just started to happen. I am sure it is not the hardware acceleration settings. If I go to Print preview, unclick the zoom tool and select the image, I can then change it to any other than ' inline with text'. this then allows me to see the image in normal or layout view.
    Once i have the image in normal or layout view, which is now in the draw layer(Floating) then if cannot from these views change to inle with text - it is grayed out. If I in Print Preview change it back to inline with text, then it is just an outline box again in the normal / layout viewws!

    I think that WOrd is corrupt? I have done a detect and repair., still no joy. Any thoughts? It seems that Word's ability to draw images that are inline with text has been corrupted.

    Cheers
    Thanks,

    Do you have the 'Picture Placeholders' box checked at "Tools, Options" and then the "View" tab?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
