Apply a paragraph style in Keynote on Mac
Using paragraph styles is a quick way to uniformly format text throughout a presentation.
Apply a paragraph style
Click the text box or shape with the text you want to change, or select specific text.
Note: You can’t apply a paragraph style to text in a table cell.
In the Format sidebar, click the Text tab.
Click the paragraph style name at the top of the sidebar, then choose a style from the Paragraph Styles menu.
If you later change the look of text that has a paragraph style applied to it—for example, you make the text bold or change its color—an asterisk and an Update button, in some cases, appears next to the style’s name in the Paragraph Styles menu, indicating that the style has an override. You can update the paragraph style to incorporate the overrides if you want.
Tip: For faster formatting, create keyboard shortcuts to apply styles to text.
