Specifies the percentage to enlarge or reduce a shape's shadow.

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.

This percentage is used when the shadow type for a shape is set to Page Default (ShapeShdwType cell equals visFSTPageDefault).

To set this behavior for an individual shape, use the ShapeShdwScaleFactor cell in the Fill Format section.

This value corresponds to the value in the Magnification box on the Shadows tab in the Page Setup dialog box (on the Design tab, click the Page Setup arrow).
