  7. If there are files missing (e.g. tiled images will be not added automatically) add them now by using the Add Files or Add Folder buttons.
  8. If you want to keep specific files external (files that are not embedded will be loaded the normal way) remove them now by selecting them and using the Remove button.
  9. The embedded files will be embedded and so also loaded in the order that was given here in this list. To change the loading/embedding order uncheck the 'Automatically Sort Loading Order' option and re-order the files by selecting them and using the Move up and Move down buttons.
