My Pc's operating system is Windows XP Home and I have Office 2003 installed. I can create a document in MS Publisher 2003 and insert clip art or a picture. When I re-open the file the text appears but not the clipart or picture - only the 'handles'! Any suggestions please, as this has happened quite suddenly - no problems previously!
I refer to my earlier posting when I said I couldn't reopen a Publisher 2003 doc that had been created with clipart or a picture inserted. The text only reappears with the 'handles' of the inserted graphic. I tried the suggested remedy from VoG but the 'Hide Pictures' option was not ticked. Any other suggestions would be very gratefully received.
My earlier posting has attracted two replies for which I thank you. Unfortunately, neither has been the solution to the problem. I have, since the reply by lotvic, which I carried out as suggested, uninstalled and reinstalled 'Publisher 2003' and the problem remains. Any other suggestions please!
try this from Publisher Help and tell us what it finds
"You can check the status of each picture (picture: A bitmap or draw-type graphic that is brought into Publisher. Clip art is one type of picture.) in your publication. For example, you can determine whether a picture is linked or embedded, whether it has been modified, or whether a link to an external picture is missing.
On the Tools menu, click Graphics Manager. Under Display options, in the Sort by list, click Status. ""
(In Graphics Manager pane that comes up make sure that in 'Show:' it says 'All pictures')
