Is there a way to set the default text height for a new comment?
(I've looked through help but can't find it if it's in there.)
I assume you mean the font size? There is no text height available in Excel.
A comment has a shape property and that is what you can use to change the font size.
They didn't make it easy ...

The rule that the PT Wizard adopts is,
If all the values in the field being added to the data area are Numeric,
then it uses Sum.
If any of the values are Text or BLANK, then it uses Count.
