Inserting Clip Art into Word 2007 only places outline of clip art BUT print preview shows all

New reinstall of Office 2007.  In word can select Clip Art to insert into a document, but it only inserts the 'frame or outline of the clip art.  When I hit Print Preview, the clip art is displayed.  There is a check box somewhere, but I can't find it!

vsddip,

That is a fine video detailing the insert picture process, but it begins with inserting a picture...that is very nicely displayed...my problem is that I insert a picture and it is NOT displayed...just the box outlining where the picture is to be on the page.  Only if I go to print preview do I see the image.

Sounds like you have a default option "show picture placeholders" turned on. Word can show either the image or the outline. (If you have a lot of images, showing just the outline can speed things up.)

Instructions for Word 2007
-In the MS Office button (big button at top left of window), got to Word Options
-Select "Advanced" in the left column
-Scroll down a bit to "Show document content"
-uncheck the box for "show picture placeholders"

Found the solution to the problem.  It involved unchecking a 'Show Picture Placeholder' checkbox.  The reference article number is KB918788.
