You can right click the shape and select Format Shape to open the Format Shape pane. In the Format Shape pane, enable the Size & Properties tab, go to the Properties section, and check the Move and Size with cells option.
FYI, the Move and Size with cells option is checked by default.

What kinds of content do you want to insert or replace in bulk? Hyperlinks?

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 7 years agoIs there a way of automatically updating multiple links in a cell if rows above it have be added/deleted?
I have a problem whereby adding an extra row causes the link to now point a cell one row out
I am using insert shapes and linking that way as described in this article in order to support multiple links in the cell
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 7 years agoYou need to define a name for the range you are wanting to hyperlink to. Once you do this it does not matter how many row are inserted before or after, it will hyperlink to that range.
