Determines the amount of randomization of the shape’s fill from the shape’s geometry when using a sketch effect, as a percentage of the length of a section. If the value of the SketchFillChange cell is set to 0%, the bounding geometry of a shape’s fill matches the shape’s geometry. If the value is 100%, the bounding geometry of the shape’s fill does not follow the geometry of the shape.

For best results, the ideal range of values for the SketchFillChange cell is between 15% and 50%. A value below 15% is barely noticeable; a value greater than 50% is increasingly more randomized.

To get a reference to the SketchFillChange cell by name from another formula, by value of the N attribute of a Cell element, or from a program using the CellsU property, use:

Cell name:


To get a reference to the SketchFillChange cell by index from a program, use the CellsSRC property with the following arguments:

Section index:


Row index:
