Lost command buttons

Experts,
I had command buttons from R6:R83, Column [0]. I did a filter, removed the filter now I have only a command button on R[6]C[0]. I've not deleted any, yet I can not see the only one command button in cell R6:C0

If you move that command button, you will find all the command buttons are re-sized and hidden behind that button.

You need to right click on the button, before you autofilter and click on "Format Control". Under "Properties" tab, select "Do not move or size with cells" :)

Yes but it is very painful. I can try to write a code which can align all the button in that sheet right below one another but then you will have to finally arrange them manually by dragging.

If you alter that to:
Sub Sample()
    Dim ol As Shape
    Dim nTop As Long
    nTop = 10
    For Each ol In ActiveSheet.Shapes
        If ol.Type = 8 Then
            ol.Placement = xlFreeFloating
            ol.Height = 21
            ol.Width = 50
            ol.Top = nTop
            ol.Left = 0
            nTop = nTop + 25
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window


then it will also set the no move or size property for you.
