Objects/Pictures don't appear in Word



  • 1. Lines around the bottom and the right of a JPEG (word 2000)
    Okay, I'm really out of my depth with this one. Someone's pasted a bunch of pictures into my file which has blown up its size enormously. If I cut one, and do a paste special, the paste special box has 'html format' highlighted. When I paste the picture back in again as a jpeg, it reduces the size of the file but I get a line around the bottom and the right. I could crop them out maybe, but I've got an awful lot of pictures to do. If anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful. Carol NS

    Does anyone know how to rotate a graphic image (not a drawing or text) in Word. I have a horizontal image that needs to be vertical. I would welcome any and all advice. Please e-mail me at XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 3. Word 2002 & JPGs vs Word 97 - Macro Problem Formatting Images
    We have just changed to Office XP Pro from Office 97 Pro. We have many documents with one JPG image per page, and had developed macros on our toolbars to format the newly inserted image (size, placement, wrapping, etc.) We are having trouble re-doing these macros in Word 2002 (XP) - they just won't work. When initially we insert the image from file, it comes in with small black grips and we cannot resize it (is that a "frame"?). If we select that image and then try to run our macro, we get error "4198". But after we select the image and change the formatting in Layout and Position so that text wraps through (we have no text, as such) and the image does not move with any text, then the image then has the grips with white fill that we are used to seeing. Then we can select the image again and run our macro, although the size won't change for us, nor wlll the position relative to the margin (Horiz) or page (vert) -- I don't see anwhere to control that in the "format Picture" dialog (the placement itself, not whether its relative). This is driving me nuts, and we have to do this a lot -- we use Word to organize and print large collections of images. Help!
  • 4. Resizing multiple pictures in Word XP
    I have a need to resize multiple (1000+) pictures in a document so that they're all exactly the same size. I drug the borders and guessed when I first pasted them in, but this isn't consistent enough. If someone tells me a way to do this without resizing them individually, my poor tired eyes will thank you repeatedly.....
  • 5. Borders in conjuction with Tables
    I am working on a document that has many tables. A page border has to be placed around the document (this is a training manual) and in addition I have placed a border two-inches from the left margin for note taking for the students. The issue is when there is a table the two-inch border will not appear because the table already is surrounded by its own border. I am not sure what to do. Any suggestions are welcomed

Objects/Pictures don't appear in Word

Postby Calvin H. Johnson » Wed, 16 Jul 2003 09:43:05 GMT

When I insert a picture or an object in a Word 2002 
document, all that appears is a box, or, when clicked, 
handles of the object. The picture/clipart itself does 
not appear in regular, print or web mode. However, when I 
do a print preview, I can see the picture or object. 
Unfortunately, I cannot edit the picture or object in the 
document, so I can't move it or anything. I have the 
latest patch to Word 2002 and Windows XP Professional. 
Would appreciate any insight here. Thanks.

1.Pasted Objects Don't Appear (Word 2007)

Often when I paste an object, one of two things will happen:
1) If I am pasting into a document (NOT into a frame): The object will paste 
to the document but will not be visible until I re-size the view (e.g.: go 
from page width to full page view, for example).
2) If I am pasting into a document (INTO A FRAME): The object does not paste 
until the second aste
I guessing these are quirks of the 2007 Word.  Any way to cure these ills?

2.Pictures or Graphs don't appear when I open a Word Document

I use different word templates to create newsletters and flyers.  For some 
reason with my copy of word my Pictures or Graphics don't always appear when 
I open a document.  I can see a blank space and outline if I click on it.  
Sometimes they'll appear when I do a print preview.  They always always print 
correctly and like I said can see the outline of where they should go but 
just can't see them all the time.  Is this a refresh or load time issue??  
I'm sure there is a setting somewhere that I haven't found. I'm running a 
pentium 1.8 with  with 768 ram, windows XP pro, and Office 2003.  My computer 
isn't slow, b ut I know the same document immediately loads fine on other 
machines, so I "assume" it's an office setting somewhere.


3.My pictures don't appear on Word screen.

I use images and pictures in making layouts for newsletters.  All of a sudden 
I cannot see the images that I insert on Word documents.  They appear on the 
print preview screen, and they print..but are not on the screen document.  I 
think I must have inadvertently changed a setting somewhere, but I cannot 
determine what or where it is.

I am using Microsoft Word from Microsoft Office XP Standard version 2002.

4.Picture or Object Does Not Appear in Word Document

My problem is that pictures does not appear in word document. The problem is perfectly described in MS knowledge base article 285957. The work around works but now the cause of it. Because this problem does occur since a view weeks and was no problem before

What I get to see of those pictures is the space it occupies. I can not select the picture and re-wrap it.
Of course everything advised in the technote is checked.

De work around to cut every picture en past it back (stated before works) is cumbersome if you got documents with numerous pictures involved.

So I am looking for cause and a solution, not a work around
