[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

buSzPts (Bullet Size Points)

This element specifies the size in points to be used on bullet characters within a given paragraph. The size is specified using the points where 100 is equal to 1 point font and 1200 is equal to 12 point font.

[Example: Consider the DrawingML shown below.

  …  <a:p>
    <a:pPr …>
      <a:buSzPts val="1400"/>
    …    <a:t>Bullet 1</a:t>
    …  </a:p

The size of the above bullet does not follow the text size of the text within the given text run. The bullets size is specified by val="1400", which corresponds to a point size of 14. This bullet size should only apply to the actual bullet character and not to the text within the bullet. end example]
