I think it's just right the way it is... what you've really got is an outline and the emphasis on the higher levels of the outline would typically be more than that level's child topics.

Hi, fellow TWs.

In the PPT template I've received, on many sides (mostly the bullet
slides), the Section heading is large and above the smaller Topic heading.

For example:


Checking the Ticket

- bullet 1
- bullet 2
- bullet 3


Two questions:
1) Shouldn't the Section heading be smaller? The Topic is what's discussed
in the slide!
2) Having both Section and Topic headings seems unnecessary. Should I just
remove the Section heading altogether?

TIA for your advice.
