    Hopefully someone else has experienced this problem and found a solution. I just installed Office 2008 for Mac student and home edition. When I open files previously created in Office X for Mac that contain pictures, when I try to print the document on any of my laser printers (color and B&W) everything prints but the pictures. I have tried saving the file in the docx extension format thinking that might have something to do with it ... but no improvement.

    I have tried changing the format of the picture, printing from "print preview" and nothing helps. In the interim I have gone back to using my previous version of word.

    Print the whole document as a pdf

    I only experience this error when printing selected pages (just this page). F'n LAME!

    EDIT: In this particular document, my work-around is not working. If I try to print the whole document, it just prints the pages greater than where i have my image.

    This error has been around for a while with no indication from Microsoft that they are aware of it or working on it. I am seriously considering finding all my docx files and saving them in an old format and reverting. This is not worth it even once, and now I've wasted a lot of time twice. Glad I didn't pay for this software out of my pocket!
