As you say, this problem affects only the display in the editing 
screen, not the result, whether printed or exported as PDF, or indeed 
Page Preview. It is sometimes useful to suppress the display of 
images, as re-rendering them as the display changes can slow down the 
operation of the program, for example in scrolling.

In modern fantasy (literary or governmental), killing people is the
usual solution to the so-called war between good and evil. My books are
not conceived in terms of such a war, and offer no simple answers to
simplistic questions.
