When you open a Microsoft Office Word 2010 or Word 2007 document that contains a picture or an object, the picture or the object may not appear. This problem may occur in a document that contains a picture, a graphic image, an AutoShape object, or another object.
You are using the “In line with text” Wrapping style option
Turn off the “Picture Placeholders” option
When you turn off the Picture Placeholders option, you can view the picture or the object in all views. To turn off the Picture Placeholders option, follow these steps, as appropriate for your version of Word.
- Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
- Under Display document content, click to clear the Picture Placeholders check box.
- Click OK.
- Click File, and then click Options.
- Click Advanced.
- Under Show document content, click to clear the Show Picture Placeholders check box.
- Click OK.
Note The Picture Placeholders option does not affect pictures or objects when you use a Wrapping style option other than the In line with text option. The Picture Placeholders option affects pictures and objects when you use the In line with text option in all views except the Full Screen Reading view.
