Sorry if this question sounds stupid, but I haven't found any answer.

I know I can animate a bulleted-list in keynote so it appears by bullet, one by one. Can I insert a full-screen slide (picture or something) in the middle of this animation?

Like this.

  1. Show bullet #1
  2. Show bullet #2
  3. Show a full-screen slide
  4. Show bullet #3

The only solution I can think of - is to create two duplicate slides and a picture-slide in between.

PS. Adding "links" to other slide won't help since I only have a "next" button during the presentation, no mouse/kbd/touchscreen

  • I'm torn—creating duplicate slides means more text to update if you need to make changes, but putting everything on one slide (e.g. futzing with build order and build-in/build-out so the full-slide picture is on top of everything, but only when it should be shown) means the image covers everything while I'm editing slides.

Make two text boxes, the first with bullets 1 and 2 and the second with bullet 3. Then add an entrance and exit effect for the picture in between the entrances of the two text boxes.
