Legend Default Item Size - Map Automation

I have a map automation program.

The problem is I have a set of map templates that I start off, saved, with existing blank Legend elements...

and upon adding layers to the map using Python, the default size for the Legend item text descriptions are too large as items are added to the map and thereby the Legend.

I wish to save each template with the appropriate Legend item text size settings based on the size of the desired Legend element area, and I have not found where this is possible.

I am able to adjust such settings that "stick" and are saved with each template such as the patch height and width, certain spacing properties, but NOT the Legend item text descriptions for a symbol.

Please help!
