RE: not showing phots in grapics

You'll have to reword your question Raymond.

You have Windows 2000 and something has a box somewhere? What program?

More info please.

RE: not showing phots in grapics

Raymond, in order to make use of this forum you need to explain your problem clearly in terms that the technical experts here will understand. Otherwise, the best thing to do is call someone out, SHOW them the problem and pay them to fix it for you. You can do this by following the Get Support link on the PCIQ Home Page.

Richard, I wonder if Raymond is talking about Word 2000 and difficulties in inserting an image file into a document and getting it to print? correctly?

RE: not showing phots in grapics

there is a bug in Word 2000 where if you right click and insert a picture in the page it just appears as an icon, not as the picture. If you go through the drop down menus and insert a picture by selecting it from the file manager that DOES work. Old bug, never got fixed as far as I know. Fix is to simply use the menus

RE: not showing phots in grapics

Richard S, there is a knack to explaining technical problems to other people. Some people can do it easily and some people find it difficult and I think you fall into the latter camp. But as you don't explain your problem very clearly it is difficult to offer constructive help. You are wasting your time struggling with this problem and time is money so why not spend some money, call out a PCIQ IT Professional, SHOW them the problem and get them to fix it for you?

RE: not showing phots in grapics

Sorry, my last comments were, of course, addressed to Raymond S. (and not Richard S. as I mistakenly wrote).

RE: not showing phots in grapics

I wonder if its possible that you have moved the source directory from it's original location when you inserted the picture into Word. To see if this is the case right-click on the empty frame within the Word page where the photo should be and select 'properties'. You should then be able to see the path to the source folder that Word is trying to access. If you moved the source folder or re-named it since inserting the picture then this path will be wrong. To correct it just replace the picture from file by navigating to where it currently is.
