In Word, if you're working in Normal view, switch to Print Layout view 
(View | Print Layout), because objects that are formatted as "float over 
text" (Word 97) or *not* "inline with text" (Word 2002 and 2003) are not 
visible in Normal view.  In Word, click on Tools | Options | View tab | 
check the "Drawings" box and uncheck the "Picture placeholders" box | 
Print tab | check the "Drawing objects" box | OK.  If neither of the 
prevous suggestions fixes the problem, then try reducing the hardware 
acceleration setting in Start | Control Panel | Display | Advanced |

2.clip art thumbnail not seen

My computer has recently been reinstalled and having the office 2003 software 
reinstalled on my computer I have had a problem viewing the clip art 
thumbnails.  I can see an occasional one, but most of the time I have to go 
to the sidebar of the thumbnail and select properties/preview in order to see 
what the picture actually is.
I've tried to figure out how to change the option to allow for automatic 
preview, but can't find any place to select it.
Before they just automatically came up after I typed in my topic.

5.Cannot download clip art from office online

ClipArt downloaded from Office online gives error "Clip Organizer cannot 
the operation. Unspecified error. Error Code 0x80004005."
Situation:  Default location for the My Documents folder is redirected to a 
network drive for backup purposes. A group policy has been applied to not 
allow any files to be written or downloaded into the My Music and My Pictures 
Issue:  Word imports online clip art into the My Documents\My 
Pictures\Microsoft Clip Organizer (automatically created at first import), so 
I get an error when I try to save clip art: "Clip Organizer cannot complete 
the operation. Unspecified error. Error Code 0x80004005."
If I go to the My Documents properties and change the target to the local 
drive by clicking "Restore Default", the problem is fixed.  However, that is 
not the solution as our users' documents have to stay on the network drive.
