Word, pictures in the document take long time to appear on screen



  • 1. I want to superimpose a "NO" symbol (circle with slash) on top of.
  • 2. Not Viewing ClipArt/Pictures-Again
    OK now, I've used Word for a long time. I'm using 2003. I've posted this problem before and had some very good results, but the problem keeps coming back. At first I was trying to place clipart into labels (via autotext). One time it would actually show the clipart in the Envelope and Labels Dialog Box, then the next time it would not. Same goes for viewing the clipart in the document, sometimes it appears, other times not. I am not seeing the X icon, just a blank screen. I can aways see the clipart in Print Preview. Now I've been through the following: 1. Tools, Options, View; remove check mark from picture placeholders, check drawings, Print Tab; check drawings 2. Cache Full; Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files 3. Start, Control Panel, Display, Advanced, Reduce Setting I brought up a document (flyer) this morning and it does not show the pictures I saw yesterday. I went into double-check the check marks on step 1 above - the check mark next to drawings was removed (I did not do this). I feel like there are things happening in the background - or this new version of Word has glitches? This problem has just come up in the last 3 months. I'm using the same software and computer. The first time I asked, deleting the files under Internet Options worked for awhile, now that's not helping. Well I'll keep checking, maybe someone will have a solution. Thanks

Check your Display Control Panel:

Start Button>Settings>Control Panel>Appearance & Themes>Display

Go to the Settings page, click the Advanced button, then the Troubleshoot 
tab. Back the Harware Accelleration slider down several notches & apply the 
change. If that makes a difference contact the web site for the video card 
mfr to see if there is an updated driver available.

1.word 2002 font screen takes a long time to appear

In an earlier post I reported that Word 2002 was not responding when I did 
Format/Font or Modified a Style.  To my amazement, the Font screen comes up 
but after what I'd consider an very long time (30 seconds plus). I was 
prematurely closing the font screen assuming it stopped responding. What 
would Word be looking for that initial request that is making take so long?
However, once it comes up it appears very quickly from that point on for 
that session of Word. When I reopen Word that first font screen takes a 
long time. I just upgraded to 2002 from Word 97 on my XP laptop. Is this 
normal behavior for Word 2002 and XP?

One other question. On my Windows 98 machine all the font icons were TT, 
with the XP machine some fonts show TT but most have an O icon but still 
has the .ttf file extension. COuld someone tell me what the O stands for?


2.Office XP SP 2 "Save As" dialog box takes long time to appear

3.Deleting block of text takes a long, long, LONG time

When I try to delete selected (highlighted) text, nothing seems to happen for 
a very long time. Word 2007 seems to just sit and think, and does nothing for 
30s to a minute. For very short pieces of text (several characters) it goes 
faster, for medium sized (1 page), the delay is unnaceptable.

This happens regardless of whether I use Backspace, Delete, Ctrl+X, or just 
type over selected text.

It's a very big issue when using any macros that rely on repeatedly 
pasting/deleting blocks of text, such as any of the translation tools that 
integrate with Word via macros (Trados, Logoport).

I'm using Word 2007 SP2 (and a computer fast enough to run most new games, 
so you'd think deleting 600 words would not be a problem...)

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

4.Word 2002 takes long time to open Word document with missing templ

I have many documents that were created in previous version of Word 2002 in 
the network, and they were attached to a template that has been moved or no 
longer exists in the previous server.

They are now being opened VERY slowly in word 2002 (takes 2-3 minutes for 
few pages document). There is nothing very unique about these documents, they 
do have some tables in them. It is very basic. 

Is there any fix or patch which can solve this problem without modifying the 
Word documents? Any help would be appreciated.
