Sorry about the empty reply - fingers acting quicker than the brain!

If the person receiving the document is not going to edit it then you
should ALWAYS send it as a PDF.

Even between two PCs there can be sufficient differences in the Word
configurations to totally screw up any document.

I create my docs in Word 2010 on a PC. When someone using a Mac opens
one of my word files, the text is all there, but the images are blank.
The work-around for this is to send the Word file as a PDF as the images
are displayed when the PDF is opened on a Mac. Has anyone else
encountered this issue and have a solution other than the PDF one? It
seems to me to be some sort of incompatibility between Word documents
created on a PC and a Mac.

Cheers
