Whenever I try to paste a picture into a word document (2003) , it doesn't show up. If I click on the area I pasted it on, I can see that there is a blank box the size of the picture I copied.
Usually the picture will be copied from any internet site, such as googling something random in Google Images.
1/Uncheck the picture placeholder check box in your word document in the section Tools->Options->Views tab in section show. This should help you out
2/thanks - surprisingly, the tip on hardware accelerator is what worked for me. My Dell laptop was recently replaced (don't ask) with a comparable model and everything worked fine except that drawings/pictures would not refresh/appear. Very strange. Ended up by setting display Hardware Accelerator to mid-range (disable directdraw and direct3d accelerations, as well as cursor and advanced drawing accelerations). Original (default?) setting was FULL. Anyhow - thanks for the pointer. Saved me a lot of frustation.
Q. error message :
WARNING :The application requires DirectDraw Accelerating which is not available in your system . please enable it in "DirectX Diagnostic Tool" (dxdiag.exe) in the tab 'display'
A.Lack of hardware acceleration. Some programs run very slowly or not at all unless Microsoft DirectDraw or Direct3D hardware acceleration is available. Click the Display tab, and then under DirectX Features, check to see whether DirectDraw, Direct3D, or AGP Texture acceleration is marked Not Available. If so, you might consider upgrading your hardware. You might also need to turn on graphics acceleration.
