MS Word Image Problems

By bldsm ·
When I paste or "insert" "picture" "from file" an image into MS Word it will not show up as it should unless I print preview or print the document. However minimising the doc then maximising will show for a second til I do something else. It prints OK it's just when its on the screen it won't.

I have a brand new dual processor PC, top of the line, designed for video editing so it's not the PC. I have Office Professional 2002 and the software works otherwise. Maybe there is a patch for Word which deals with this?

Can anyone help me?

I know this is probably not the answer, but it doesn't hurt to ask. What View setting do you have set in Word. If you don't have it set to Print, then you may be seeing the document as normal which hides graphics of anykind to improve performance.

use the View menu to change to one of the other view types (i.e. Outline, Print, Web, etc). It should show up then. If you have already set this option, perhaps you can provide a little more information about the picture you are pasting/inserting.

select tools-->options and under the view tab, show subheading, uncheck picture placeholders.
