Add rules (lines) to separate text in Keynote on Mac
You can separate text by adding a solid, dashed, or dotted rule above or below paragraphs in a text box or shape.
Add lines between paragraphs
Select the text where you want to add a rule.
In the Format sidebar, click the Text tab, then click the Layout button near the top of the sidebar.
Click the pop-up menu next to Borders & Rules, then choose a line type (solid, dashed, or dotted).
Click the disclosure arrow next to Borders & Rules, then do any of the following:
Set where the line appears: Click a position button.
Change the thickness of the line: Click the arrows for the value field next to the line color controls.
Choose a color that goes with your theme: Click the color well on the left of the color wheel.
Choose any color: Click the color wheel, then choose a color in the Colors window.
Adjust the spacing between the line and the text it’s applied to: Click the arrows for the Offset field.
To remove a rule, select the paragraph, click the pop-up menu below Borders & Rules, then choose None.
