When I sort my spreadsheet with embedded files (pdf) the files do not follow their correct row and get scrunched up on top of each other.

Hi, E227.

Please right-click on one of the files, select "Format Object..." and click on the "Properties" tab. Which one of the three "Object positioning" radio buttons is selected?

Move but don't size with cells.  When I changed it to "Move and size with cells" and sorted, the embedded object moved with the row contents.  Thanks!!
