When I place a photo into my Word 2007, the outline placement lines show up but the photo itself does not appear. When I go to print preview, it shows up but not on my document. Please help!

✔ Best Answer
Open Word, click on the orb, top left, and choose 'Word Options', select 'advanced' and under 'show document content' remove the tick from 'show picture placeholders' (if it's there)

Thank you...thank you...thank you. It worked. The only difference was there was no tick option so I simply unchecked placeholder and the photo came back. There is one other option after that though to make this so it works on all documents. There is another option below that same section that asks if this is for the current document or "new documents". I selected the all new documents so it will work with whatever documents I am working with in the future. Now...I have one more little problem to solve before I can get back to work. In the process of trying to fix the photo, I must have selected some option that now puts the paragraph marking and dashes in all my documents. I just can't remember how I did that so if you could help me solve that one last issue, I will be forever grateful. Thank you again.

It is in the same area, under the 'display' section, just remove the ticks from everything under 'always show these formatting marks on the screen'. If it is also printing them then you need to check under 'advanced', then the 'print' section.

Thank you. I found that before you responded but sure glad someone is there to ask. I also feel stupid I didn't know what "tick" meant. Apparently that is the checkmark. Am I correct? I looked and looked for something called "tick" I keep learning something new everyday.
Thanks again.

Yes, 'tick' is UK for 'checkmark' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tick_(...
