    I have a friend who just called and said that he inserted a pic in a Word file and it's not showing except in print preview. He wants to be able to manipulate the picture from within Word, but all that is showing is a big white box. He doesn't know what, if anything, he did to Word to make this happen. Any thoughts?

    Going into the "Tools" menu, selecting "Options" and making sure that on the "View" tab that "Picture Placeholders" is unchecked fixed the problem. Thanks to John Steven on the VirtualDr forum for this info.
