Keynote for iPad: Add and edit a shape in Keynote

Add and edit a shape in Keynote

The shapes library contains hundreds of shapes in a variety of categories. After you add a shape to a slide, you can customize the shape in a number of ways. For example, you can change the standard five-point star into a twenty-point starburst and adjust how rounded the corners of a square are. You can also add text inside a shape and fill a shape with color or an image.

Add a shape

  1. Tap where you want to insert the shape, tap the Insert button, then tap the Shape button.

    The shapes library, with categories at the top and shapes displayed below. You can use the search field at the top to find shapes and swipe to see more.
  2. Select a category at the top of the shapes library, then tap or drag a shape to add it to your slide.

    To search for a shape, tap the Search Shapes button at the top of the shapes library, then enter the name of the shape.

You can also copy a shape from another presentation, or from Pages or Numbers.

    • Change the shape of the points on a star: Drag the inner green dot toward the center of the star to make the points longer and narrower, or drag away from the center to make the points shorter and wider.

    • Change the shape of a callout or speech bubble: Drag the green dot on the body of the bubble to reshape it. Drag the green dot at the tip of the point to change its length and position. Drag the green dot at the base of the point to change its width.

    • Change the number of sides in a polygon: Drag the green dot clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the number of sides.
