POWERPOINT - reset default font scaling

I think the default fonts used in Powerpoint are too large.
Is there a way to set this so the fonts in a whole presentation are scaled smaller?  

Is there a way to change the relative sizes of fonts, for example so that a bulleted indent and the next level in are the same size?

I do not want to change these on individual slides (I know I can do that and it's a pain) - I want to reset the default so that when I start typing on a slide the Main heading is say, 20 pts, the next level is 16 pts, the next level is also 16, etc.

My version is Powerpoint 95 v.7.0.

Another question, why does Powerpoint 95 v7.0 save Presentations files as .ppt, and why will Corel Presentations 8 not open these files?

Edit the slide master & change the font sizes etc. as required.

If you want to use the new settings in future presentation, use File | Save As... and save a new template into the Templates folder.  Blank Presentation.pot is the standard.

Re the second question:
(a) they have to have an extension, and it just happens to be .ppt.  What's the problem?
(b) presumably Corel Prentations 8 is not new enough, or you need a filter.  Not having used it I can't say for sure.

Well, the .ppt extension (the default for Powerpoint) implies that it was saved as Powerpoint, not Presentations (.shw) format.  This is of interest because it is in fact not able to be opened by Presentations.  

Corel Suite 8 is much newer than MS Office 95.
