Place objects inside a text box or shape in Keynote on iPad
You can paste images, image galleries, videos, text boxes, shapes, and equations inside a text box or shape. The inner (nested) object is automatically placed inline with any text in the outer text box or shape (parent object), so that it sits with and moves with the text as you type.
Place objects inline with text in a text box or shape
If you haven’t already added a text box or shape to your slide, or haven’t added the object you want to paste inside it, tap , then tap to add the objects you want to work with.
Select the object you want to nest inside a text box or shape, then tap Cut.
If the object is on the page, tap to select it; if it’s inline with text, double-tap to select it.
Double-tap the text box or shape where you want to paste the object so the insertion point appears inside it, tap it again, then tap Paste.
The pasted object is nested inside the parent object. If you see a clipping indicator at the bottom of the object, you need to resize it to see all of its contents.
To add text, double-tap inside the text box or shape, tap again so you see the insertion point, then type.
If you accidentally select the nested object (three selection handles appear), tap outside it to move the insertion point into the parent object.
Tip: If the nested object is a text box or shape, you can type or paste an image, shape, or equation inside it. Select the nested object, tap (if it’s a text box) or double-tap (if it’s a shape) inside the nested object to see the insertion point, then type or paste the object.
Move an inline object to the slide
You can move an inline object to the slide so that it’s no longer nested inside another object.
Double-tap the inline object to select it.
Tap , then tap Arrange.
Tap Move to Slide.
