[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

buSzPct (Bullet Size Percentage)

This element specifies the size in percentage of the surrounding text to be used on bullet characters within a given paragraph. The size is specified using a percentage where 1000 is equal to 1 percent of the font size and 100000 is equal to 100 percent font of the font size.

[Example: Consider the DrawingML shown below.

  …  <a:p>
    <a:pPr …>
      <a:buSzPct val="111000"/>
    …    <a:t>Bullet 1</a:t>
    …  </a:p

The size of the above bullet follows the text size in that it is always rendered at 111% the size of the text within the given text run. This is specified by val="111000", with a restriction on the values not being less than 25% or more than 400%. A value of 100000 is equal to 100%, similarly a value of 1000 is equal to 1%. This percentage size should only apply to the actual bullet character and not to the text within the bullet. end example]
