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.
