Tutorial Description

The third and final application in the revised iWork suite - Keynote - Apple's cinematic presentation tool.

Create and deliver amazing looking presentations with Keynote.

The application has been re-written to provide cross platform compatibility with iOS enabling you to use your Mac, iPad or iPhone in all stages of your presentation production and delivery.

Apple have simplified the user interface, without removing the power and have made it easier than ever to manipulate and animate objects and text on your slides.

In this first of a two part series, I take a look at the new user interface as well as exploring slide transitions (including the fantastic Magic Move transition) and creating complex builds and animations on objects.

In the next part of the series, I'll be taking a look at animating text and charts (including the new Magic Chart animation) as well as the Presenter Display and more.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Introduction to Keynote
  • Navigating Slides
  • Slide Transitions
  • Magic Move
  • Animating Objects

At 9:58, you say to use "Shift +" to increase the font size. I believe the shortcut is actually "Command +"

Am I correct in that the new version of Keynote removed the ability to have master slides? If so is there anything that gives you the same functionality? I used that feature a lot in the old Keynote to create templates slides.


Nope, Master slides are still there - View -> Edit Master Slides

Did something else changed with master slides? Maybe something about the inability of master slides to contain animations or builds? I'll have to find the article that led me to believe that something was now missing from master slides.
