Mine did. Today. Very frustrating as was trying to produce quotes.

word After looking into templates, trying to replace images with another image, trying a second pc with the same problem, and then when i tried a third pc with the same document but a different user and it was fine, I started to panic my profile was screwed up in some way.
I Googled it and found this page on the first hit.


The answer was very simply:

Click the Office orb on LH side and then in the main main drop-down click Word Options at the bottom.
Click the Advanced Tab
Under the Show Document Content section untick the "Show picture placeholders (tickbox)

Fixed – whew!
