Everything was working fine yesterday, but all of a sudden, my images weren't showing up anymore. I use WORD2007 and I wanted to add page numbers to my pages, but when I did so, nothing happened.I have no idea how that box got checked, but I unchecked it and now all is back to normal. I was thinking maybe I did something wrong, but as I fiddled with Table of Contents and Table of Images, both of them showed up the accurate page numbers, so I became suspicious.Since the Styles control the formatting of the entries in the Table of Contents, we need to modify the Styles to correct the formatting.
If you no longer have the linked files for the missing objects, your only option is to re-create the missing objects (or ask the document author to send you the files).Just press the Esc (escape) key to close the context menu, and the image remains selected.this didn't work for me as that was already unchecked..worked was checking "show drawings and text boxes on screen" - it must have previously been checked but after word crashes it must disable it?I was vexed by this problem for about a week, then I searched online and came up with this forum. (1) If Field Codes Box is checked, you will see the the code (EMBED Word Picture.8), so un-check this box.(2) If Picture Placeholder Box is checked, you will see the an outline of the picture, but no picture, so un-check this box. Perhaps I received some Word file that had these options and somehow during a Word recovery, the document template got updated to these settings. I spent about an hour trying to figure out what the problem was by Googling, Googling, Googling. Ok, so if anyone is experiencing the same issue as I did here is a half but working solution.
