Specifies the percentage by which the shadow of a shape can be enlarged or reduced.

Each shadow has a shadowed pin location, which is a point on the shadow that corresponds to the shape's pin. For example, if a shape's pin is in the center of the shape, then the shadowed pin location would be the point in the center of the shadow. When applying scale to simple shadows, magnification is centered at the shadowed pin location; when applying scale to oblique shadows, magnification is applied in the oblique direction.

To set this value for all the shapes on a page, use the ShdwScaleFactor cell in the Page Properties section.

This value corresponds to the value of the Magnification setting in the Shadow dialog box (on the Home tab, in the Shape group, click Shadow, and then click Shadow Options).
