How display images in OS X text document?

Images do not display in a Writer document.

It matters not whether they are inserted, pasted, or dragged into a paragraph or a table cell. I have read several messages regarding inability to display images. The solutions called for menu choices that don't appear in my tools menu. My inserted or pasted images show up as a small icon with red, yellow, and blue rectangles. When I insert an image, the Preview box of the insert file dialog remains gray, inactive. A linked image adds some linking text. Memory for images is set at 20 MB. The hard drive has plenty of remaining space. How can I get images to display in the document?

Edit: I find that I can view the images in Print --> Preview and that the images print without problem. I would still like to know if it is possible to view them in the document.

I would have uploaded a sample file, but I lack the required 3 karma pts.
