I have a small issue, but do not know how to solve it:

I open a MS Word file - all is OK, I see text, BUT I do not see pictures and diagrams in Normal (usual) view. I manage to see them only in "Print Preview" mode, but then I cannot edit them. And when I return to the usual view mode, I do not see them. Any idea how to solve this funny issue?

P.S. I use Windows XP, Office 2003

Hi Marius May 23, 2007

Try changing the view mode to "Print Layout". This way you should be able to see and edit them. It's the third command in the View menu, below the "Web Layout" command.

If this doesn't help, go to Tools > Options, open the View tab and see if the "Drawings" field is checked. It's in the third section, under "Print and Web Layout Options". It should be checked for the drawings to display.

I hope this helps.
