That helps enormously: I was able to modify both the new slide behavior 
and amend to Style Sheets palette for slide shows.

One problem is left: With my added entries on both palettes, the window 
sizes for each is not quite tall enough to include everything.  Where in 
the code is that changed?

In my text editor I searched for WindowSize but that only seems to 
affect other things, e.g., the window size for a "New Template" notebook 
opened from the corresponding button.

(It's REALLY hard to parse long Mathematica expressions without all of 
the Front End's help.)
