Hello,
So far MS word worked fine. But now it is not showing up images. Also not even page numbers. Instead showing up {Page}. Please let me know why this happens? How to bring them out?

Thank you, I've been putting up with this for ages, constantly using shift+F9 to toggle the field codes back to normal.

None of the above suggestions worked for me until I tried this: (Word 2003)
1. Click the Tools->Options menu item.
2. Click the View tab.
3. Uncheck the Picture Placeholders checkbox.
4. Click OK.

Thanks

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
I was vexed by this problem for about a week, then I searched online and came up with this forum. For MS-Word 2003, I went to Tools, Options, View. (1) If Field Codes Box is checked, you will see the the code (EMBED Word Picture.8), so un-check this box. (2) If Picture Placeholder Box is checked, you will see the an outline of the picture, but no picture, so un-check this box. I have no idea how these boxes got checked. Perhaps I received some Word file that had these options and somehow during a Word recovery, the document template got updated to these settings.

Thank you so, so much! I spent about an hour trying to figure out what the problem was by Googling, Googling, Googling. Everything was working fine yesterday, but all of a sudden, my images weren't showing up anymore. I have no idea how that box got checked, but I unchecked it and now all is back to normal. I really can't thank you enough :)! Your advice was the only thing that did the trick! You're the best.

Use the keystroke Alt+F9 to toggle field code display on/off...faster than going thru the menus.

Ok, so if anyone is experiencing the same issue as I did here is a half but working solution. I use WORD2007 and I wanted to add page numbers to my pages, but when I did so, nothing happened. I was thinking maybe I did something wrong, but as I fiddled with Table of Contents and Table of Images, both of them showed up the accurate page numbers, so I became suspicious. I think something is wrong with this new office, or the software distribution was faulty. Dunno, but I checked and unchecked in the Document field codes box, and nothing happened. So WORD2007 did not even put a field code in the area where I put the page numbers. To overcome this problem I opened a document which had page numbering, and I was curious of the page number code. It was { PAGE }, so I CTRL-C, CTRL-V-ed into my document, once again checked the (In Word 2007
File[Office Button]=>Word Options=>Advanced=>Show Document content and uncheck "show field codes instead of their values") box and voila! I had my document with page numbers!

I too had the same problem. Tools>Options>view and unchecking field codes worked for me. Thanks a lot sharu.

Microsoft products keep misbehaving once in a while.

i would also add that in some cases it will help to uncheck the "Show picture placeholders" in addition to "Show field codes instead of their values".

I used to see the same issue in my machine. And previously I used to select the {page} and right-click and then click on "Toggle filed codes".
Thanks a lot for the answer on how to fix this problem.

If you mean your pictures, diagrams, graphs and anything you might add into your document from another source:
Go into Word > Tools > Options > View > Then uncheck (clear) Picture Placeholders.
That will show everything in regular view, instead of just print review.
