Objects/Pictures don't appear in Word



  • 1. TOC includes graphics
    Hi, I have a document which I have just added some graphics to. The graphics created by insert, picture, autoshapes. When I update the TOC I get gaps in the TOC which seem to be the same size as the drawing canvases in the document. If I click on these gaps a rectangular outline appears filling the gap, with corner blocks, and blocks half way along each side, just like it is a blank graphic. Style is TOC3
  • 2. Graphics and Labels
    Hello, Working in Word 2003. Would like to create a page of mailing labels, all with the same graphic on the left and same address on the right. The Envelopes and Labels dialog box will not allow access to the Insert Menu or the Drawing Toolbar. Found a work- around - right-click text and select paragraph, set left margin. Then selecting New Document. The graphic must be inserted into each label one at a time. Can an entire label be copied to the others somehow to avoid adding the graphic 20 times? Also, I find that anything that's in the clipboard will not copy to the labels. Thanks for your help.
  • 3. Edit Picture (pasted from clipboard)
    I've searched for an answer to this but the ones I've found don't exactly work. Let's say I have an app that is set at 640x480. I want to paste a screenshot into WinWord. So, I Alt-PrtScn when it's active, and paste it into WinWord. Now here's the problem. Let's say I want to extract the bitmap back out, or just edit it a little with pixel resolution (i.e. get exactly my same 640x480 back out). If I right click on it, the "Edit Picture" button is disabled. Strangely enough, if the picture is very small, the "Edit Picture" is enabled and launching it brings MS PaintBrush (which is what I want for the bigger picture). I'm guessing Microsoft is compressing larger images and making the compression lossy. I don't want lossy compression and I want to be able to edit the original 640x480 painted image. As it is now, I can't get back out the same quality of the image I put in. It's "lossy" (blah!). Any ideas? Thanks.
  • 4. No Colours Displayed in WordArt and AutoShapes
    I have found that WordArt and AutoShapes images (in Word 2003) are not displayed in colour on the monitor of my new Dell 8500. I just can't figure this one out. Help!!
  • 5. Insert Clip Art
    Whenever I choose Insert Picture, I see over a dozen commands that say "Clip Collection." Each of the options brings me to the same clip art. Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

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
