Shape.ScaleWidth method (Word)
Scales the width of the shape by a specified factor.
expression.ScaleWidth (Factor, RelativeToOriginalSize, Scale)
expression Required. A variable that represents a Shape object.
|Factor||Required||Single||Specifies the ratio between the width of the shape after you resize it and the current or original width. For example, to make a rectangle 50 percent larger, specify 1.5 for this argument.|
|RelativeToOriginalSize||Required||MsoTriState||True to scale the shape relative to its original size. False to scale it relative to its current size. You can specify True for this argument only if the specified shape is a picture or an OLE object.|
|Scale||Optional||MsoScaleFrom||The part of the shape that retains its position when the shape is scaled.|
For pictures and OLE objects, you can indicate whether you want to scale the shape relative to the original size or relative to the current size. Shapes other than pictures and OLE objects are always scaled relative to their current width.
This example scales all pictures and OLE objects on myDocument to 175 percent of their original height and width, and it scales all other shapes to 175 percent of their current height and width.
Set myDocument = ActiveDocument For Each s In myDocument.Shapes Select Case s.Type Case msoEmbeddedOLEObject, msoLinkedOLEObject, _ msoOLEControlObject, _ msoLinkedPicture, msoPicture s.ScaleHeight 1.75, True s.ScaleWidth 1.75, True Case Else s.ScaleHeight 1.75, False s.ScaleWidth 1.75, False End Select Next
