German term or phrase: Ausmaß der ,,nach hinten'' reichenden Form
KONTEXT: ,,Befehle zur Abschrägung: Die Bezeichnungen Oben und Unten beziehen sich auf die entsprechenden Kanten des Objekts. Mit Klick auf eines der beiden Symbole öffnen Sie eine bildhafte Darstellung der verfügbaren Kantentypen. Wählen Sie einen Kantentyp aus und verändern Sie bei Bedarf dessen Höhe und Breite durch Eingabe oder Einstellung von Maßen. In der Rubrik ,,Tiefe'' bestimmen Sie die Färbung jener Seitenflächen, der sich aus der extrudierten Fläche entwickeln sowie das Ausmaß der ,,nach hinten'' reichenden Form.''

I'm having trouble with the term "reichenden" here. I understand everything else but can't quite nail "reichenden" - could it perhaps be something like the scale/size of the shape that's expanding from the background?
