Select text and place the insertion point in Keynote on Mac
To edit text, you either select the text or place the insertion point in a word or paragraph where you want to begin editing.
Select one or more characters: Click in front of the first character and drag across the characters you want to select.
Select a word: Double-click the word.
Select a paragraph: Triple-click in the paragraph.
Select a range of text: Click in front of the first character, then hold down the Shift key on your keyboard and click at the end of the text you want to select.
Place the insertion point
The insertion point is a blinking vertical line or I-beam in text that indicates where the next character you type will appear.
In a table cell: Click the cell to select it, then click where you want to place the insertion point.
In a text box: Click the text box. If the object already contains text, click once to select the object, then click again in the text where you want to place the insertion point.
In a shape: Double-click the shape. If the object contains text, a word is selected; click again where you want to place the insertion point.
After you place the insertion point, you can use the arrow keys to move it.
