Objects Not Printing in Word

Ran into a problem with MS Word 2003. Images would display in the editor and could be manipulated, but they wouldn't show up when printed. It turned out to be a configuration problem with the program. It's rather stupid, but you can select what types of elements you want to print in the print configuration tab in Word. It's really getting a bit overboard all these fine grained configuration options. Really, it's supposed to be "WYSIWYG." Turning off printing of certain elements breaks that paradigm and is hard to fix for the average user.
