Ok, so I've choose "white" theme while creating a presentation. Can I somehow add slides from black theme? Or can I change theme of my presentation?

It doesn't look like you can do it in Keynote 2013 as Apple has removed this feature with this version.

An idea that you could do is to make a new Keynote file with the secondary theme that you want, copy the slide, and then paste the slide into your presentation.


Yep, you can change the theme of your Keynote presentation in Keynote '13:

  1. Go to the Presentation Setup Inspector (View → Inspector → Presentation Setup).

  2. Click the Presentation tab.

  3. Click Change Theme.

  4. Select your new theme and click Choose.

  • Yes, and this changes all the slides I already have to black. Won't do. The solution is how @unior117 wrote: new presentation and copy slides

  • @Uko I was more answering the second part to your question: "Or can I change theme of my presentation?"

  • Yes, you are right. Sorry if I was to harsh. The thing is that I thought that changing of theme won't change anything anyway, so I didn't include that in question. Thank you for your effort

  • @Uko No problem :) I know it wasn't the answer you were looking for, but I thought it would help those that might have searched for your second question.
