Word 2000 graphics not appearing

When I insert a graphic into a Word 2000 document, e. g., pressing 'Print Scrn' on the keyboard and pasting the screen shot into a document, I do not see the image in the document.  I only see a black border where the image is positioned.  I am able to see the image in print preview, and the image does print out, however I do not see the image in Normal or Print Layout view.

Also, I cannot manipulate the image when in Print Layout view. In Word 97 you could click and drag the image to move it around or you could click and drag a "handle" to re-size the image.  I cannot do any of these in Word 2000.
The only way to manipulate the image is to open it in the picture editor.  But then you lose the perspective of the image in relation to the text and the rest of the document.

Is all this a "feature" of Word 2000?  Or is there a problem with my particular installation of Word 2000?

Thank you all in advance for any information.

Go to Tools / Options / View tab and make sure you don't have "Picture Placeholders" marked in the top section.  When this is unmarked, after pasting you can click on the image and you can easily resize your graphic.

Word 2000 automatically pastes as an in-line graphic.  You can use the paragraph justification to either center, left or right-align the graphic.  If this doesn't suit your needs, you can right-click on the graphic and use Format Object / Layout to change it to a floating graphic.

Thank you, KBMacKenzie, for your answer.  Disabling the  "Picture Placeholders" option did the trick.
