Endnote displays junk text instead of citation for 1 user, displays same document just fine for someone else

Hi Experts...
I have a user using Endnote X with Word 2007.  It has been working fine for her for months.  Today, she opened a document that she has been working on and the citations she put in there are all messed up (it shows a bunch of code and tags instead of just the proper formatted citation).  

I opened the document from a separate machine and it displays just fine.  So I tested from her machine on a blank document, inserted a citation and it shows up messed up again.  I uninstalled Endnote and reinstalled.  Still displays the same issue.  Anyone have any thoughts?

Maybe reset her user options and see if that fixes it...

As it turns out, what was happening was that Endnote was turning off the feature that toggles field codes to field results.  I discovered this when the user reported that other documents that had checkboxes on them were showing {formcheckbox] instead of the box.  

By hitting Alt-F9, that toggles it back to viewing the results.  

To make sure the results are what are shown by default:

Word 2003
In Tools > Options > View, make sure "Drawings" is checked and "Picture
placeholders" is unchecked.


Word 2007
Go to Office button > Word Options > Display and check
"Print drawings created in Word"; on the Advanced tab, under "Show document
content", uncheck "Show picture placeholders".
