I know nothing about this but can only state what's probably already obvious to you, that it's the square of both numbers. I don't know if there's a way to script that in somehow but that would be my only minor contribution to this thread.

Anybody know how to do this?

I found this:

but if I edit the XML that way PowerPoint says the file has an problem and it can't repair it.

I have PowerPoint for Mac 2011 14.4.3. I suppose I could try the Windows version, I think my license lets me install that as well.
