I am running Windows XP and recently reinstalled Office 2003. Now I can't see my pictures in my powerpoint slides in the normal view. The pictures are present in the thumbnails and on the presentation view. I have tried reinstalling PowerPoint without any luck. Any ideas

I found something similar in Word once. It was a setting that speeds up page refresh by using placeholders for images rather than showing the image. I tried to find something similar in PowerPoint, but no luck sofar. I'd hunt longer, but must leave for my CAP meeting soon.

I had the very same problem for a long time and your post is the only evidence I've found anywhere that someone else has experienced this. Hopefully you've solved it by now, but if not, do you happen to have Adobe Acrobat installed?

For me - I had the same problem, I could only see images in PowerPoint in thumbnails or presentation view. My workaround was dual monitors, leaving the presentation on one, and fumbling around on the other and looking over to see what changed. I reinstalled lots of stuff but nothing worked.

Then I finally tried this: Add or Remove Programs > Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional > Modify > X (i.e., set to "This feature will not be available") out Acrobat PDFMaker.

I need that tool (I use it to create a PDF from a Word Document while keeping all internal hyperlinks (e.g., table of contents, references) functional - something which cannot be done through Print to PDF.) but use PowerPoint much more. I'll just reinstall/uninstall as needed.

Pictures don't show up
I'm trying to see some of my friend's pictures over the Internet, but for some reason it won't let me see them, it just has a white box with a red X in it. I have no idea why it won't let me see them, but any help would be awesome. Thanks. :laugh:
