The issue of whether cell brackets are visible all the time -- not just 
when you hover the cursor at the right window edge, is independent of of 
using the StyleSheet you mention and of setting the View Environment to 
SlideShow: it's a notebook option that you may set with the Option 
Inspector, either at the Selected Notebook level or Globally. In the 
Option Inspector, search for ShowCellBracket. You'll see that it's set 
by default at Automatic, which is the behavior you're observing. Change 
it to True if you want cell brackets to show all the time.

The issue of the SlideShow environment omitting the navigation arrows in 
a bar at the top is something I'm not seeing in 9.0.1 under OS X. 
Perhaps you changed some option affecting that, too?

section opening arrows on the left side of the titles and subtitles and 
also the cell brackets on the right border of the page are visible only 
after rolling over by the mouse. If I switch to the Presentation View 
Environment, I can see cell brackets and section opening arrows, but the 
background image is not visible (on the top of the slideshow, there is 
frame with message: "Background images and text colors have been 
adjusted for editing purposes").
