[EDIT]

Sorry, my answer was about styles: it was induced by your question which evoked the styles (How to modify bullet style), did not evoke the text boxes, and especially by the fact that I never use the latter in a slideshow because this Is not the right tool for me...

With text boxes what you are asking is possible by creating a custom Graphic Style. In the test_bulletsPYS.odp attached I created MyBullets as follows:

  • Draw a text box, enter text, Right-ClickBullets and Numbering to apply a custom bullet.
  • Select the text box by holding down the left click until the zone flashes (1 to 2 sec). The cursor changes, showing that it is possible to move, keep clicking and drag&drop the text box in the styles window, release the click, give a name to the style. A short video (in french & for Writer, but the principle is the same and the text does not matter) show the steps.

You can now apply the style to all of your text boxes. In the sample file you can select all of them and double click in the style window on "MyBullets".
