If you update the image file referenced by the link, Microsoft Word displays the updated image referenced by the link automatically.
Linked images in Microsoft Word are also sometimes called shapes.
My computer almost died and took a long time to process this request (due to so many references in my document).
You should include a warning about this because my paper is due in 30 minutes.
Embedded images move with the text of the paragraph in the document.(Well, actually I'm creating badges for a conference - but I'm using the mailing labels mail merge functionality for that.) I created a picture and placed in in the background of the mailing label cell content. I found the problem: I had drag and dropped the (png) images from Explorer into the document instead of using insert inside of Word.Now I'd like to replace it with another picture without changing formatting settings, size or position. For some reason the images that have been drag-and-dropped aren't able to be changed either.Those are the only known options, aside from unfriending Bill Gates...The other thing you may have noticed on your printed page is that some of your images are missing, with a box containing a red X in their place.The VBA code of updating or refreshing the caption numbers: Though the methods above are not very difficult to update or refresh caption numbers, here is the easiest way for you to update or refresh caption. After you have installed Kutools for Word, you can update or refresh caption numbers with one click.Just finished a 6000 page report and tried your Ctrl-A, F9 method.Also, photos taken in portrait (tall & narrow) orientation may be rotated onto their side.Do not attempt to change the picture in the original Word document.I am attempting to do the same - to renumber figures/photos after moving them around, without deleting and then putting them back in.I see the instructions to select all, then F9 or right click on 'update fields'.That’s just the way Word works, so you must work around it.There are three ways to work around the image-size/rotation quirk: (a) before merging, change all original images’ size and orientation to the desired size using Photo Editor or similar software, (b) after the merge is done, manually resize/rotate troublesome images in the resulting document, or (c) see “The Easy Way...” below for another kind of solution.Step 2: Press F9All the caption numbers will be updated.
