I'm using PowerPoint 2016 (PC) to add two standard rectangles to a slide via the UI.
If I group them, select the groups and then add the preset shadow type type Perspective Upper Left
, I get this result:
If I then open the VBE and query the shadow type with:
I get 39 which equates to the enumeration constant msoShadow39
With the group selected, if I now set the shadow to none and try to apply it programatically with this:
I get a result which is equivalent to applying the shadow separately to each of the shapes within the group rather than the group as a whole and this is confirmed when looking at the shape properties in the PowerPoint UI:
Why is this happening?
