Modifying styles in SlideShow screen environment

I am trying to change the square bullet to circle of the "Item" style in one of the SlideShow templates which I use (Steel).
I tried to edit the style sheet in two ways, one being simply to change (format) the dingbat, the second
that I copied and modified the default definition to the private style sheet of my file. 

The problem is that this only changes the style while I am in Working screen environment, but not in 
SlideShow environment. I know the different screen environments have different style sheets, but 
I do not know how to access them. I appreciate if anyone can tell how the style sheet of the SlideShow
environment can be changed.

Thanks very much! In the meantime I also listed out that the Item style cell for the SlideShow environment is also included  in the built-in Steel stylesheet and can be copied over to the local definitions and then edited. Your example of the editing the CellDingbat through the Option Inspector was though new to me - thanks!

Now knowing the solution I wonder why not all the different screen environment options are immediately inherited locally when one uses a template for a new slide show - it would be much simpler if one did not need to do this change manually. Anyone from Wolfram to comment? Of course in the continuation I can use my own modified slide to create further new ones, but still.

When copying the Item style cells out of the built-in Steel stylesheet, be sure to copy all three that are part of the collapsed group. You can then change the CellDingbat option on each of them, as partially shown below.
