Intro to Keynote on iPad
You can use Keynote to create compelling presentations with fun animations, interesting transitions, and professional polish.
To create a Keynote presentation, you always start with a theme, then modify it however you want. Slides in a theme include placeholder images and text styled as headlines and body content.
To build your presentation, you replace placeholder content with your own content, or delete placeholders you don’t need. You can also add other objects—like shapes, photos, and charts—to any slide.
When you select an object (an image, shape, chart, table, or cell), then tap , you see formatting controls for the type of object you selected.
You can quickly change the look of the selected text or object by applying a new style to it. Tap one of the alternative styles to change the object’s look, or use the style options to customize the object’s appearance however you like.
