Select tables, cells, rows, and columns in Keynote on Mac
To edit and rearrange tables, cells, rows, and columns, you must first select them.
Select a table
Sometimes you must select rather than just click a table to complete a specific task. Selecting ensures that the table is in the correct state for the steps that follow.
First click outside the table to make sure it’s unselected, then click the table to select it.
Select a cell: Click the table, then click the cell once.
Select a cell to edit its contents: Double-click the cell.
Select a range of cells: Click the table, click the cell once, then drag a white dot any direction to encompass the range of cells you want.
If you drag the yellow dot, you copy the cell contents to the rows you drag over. If you do this accidentally, drag the yellow dot back to its original position, or press Command-Z on the keyboard to undo the action.
Select nonadjacent cells: Click the table, click the cell once, then Command-click any other cells.
Select rows and columns
Click the table.
Letters appear above the columns and numbers appear to the left of the rows.
Do one of the following:
Select a single row or column: Click the number or letter for the row or column.
Select multiple rows or columns: Click the number or letter for a row or column, then drag a white dot to encompass the rows or columns you want.
Select nonadjacent rows or columns: Command-click any row numbers or column letters.
