Using Placeholders When Printing Graphics Files
If you are working on a document that's rich with graphics files and you need to keep printing drafts of the document, you could find your expensive toner cartridge on your printer draining rather quickly.
The best thing to do in these situations is to set Word 2000 to print placeholders for the graphics files as long as you're in draft mode. To do this, choose Tools, Options and click the View tab. Select the Picture Placeholders check box under Show and click OK. When you're ready to print the final draft of your document, simply go back and deselect this box.
