Print-to-file DOES copy the pictures (not just links) into the word
processor file, at least on my computer. I have never had any problem with
this, but some people have. A friend actually drove 20 miles to my house so
that we could generate the reports on my computer. I am using Word97, and he
was using a much newer version of Word.
Here are some things to try:
If the photos are visible in the word processor, save the file in the word
processor's own file format. (.doc or .docx for Word).
If you have another word processor (OpenOffice is free), associate .rtf with
your other word processor, and see if the files (which will now be created
in the other word processor) contain the photos. (*** WordPad will NOT work
for this. ***)
To change the file association, right-click on any .RTF file, select
Properties > Open with > Change > (browse to the other word processor,
select it, and click OK).
Let us know if this helped.
