Msword not updating pictures

My computer almost died and took a long time to process this request (due to so many references in my document).

msword not updating pictures-89

If you insert an image into a Microsoft Word source document, Microsoft Word inserts, or embeds, the image in the Microsoft Word source document, and the image becomes a part of the document.

Embedded images move with the text of the paragraph in the 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'.

For example, if you insert images in Microsoft Word source documents, you do not have worry about breaking links between the Microsoft Word source documents and the image files.

If you link to images in Microsoft Word source documents, you must ensure that you keep the same file structure for the image files in order to not break links between the Microsoft Word source document and the image file.

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.

I have lots of words files with links to multiple graphics files. I need to be able to control the filepath of hundreds of linked images from within the document, and I know how to do this with 2003.
