I want to show only the slide, without the left-side slide thumbnails in the Navigator View. How can this view be made hidden?

I am on Keynote version 7.3.1 (5249)

Note that Navigatior View is designed to show the thumbnails for navigation. Slide Only view shows only the slide without the thumbnails.

There is no built in shortcut to change views. However, a custom keyboard shortcut can be added in the System Preferences.

To create a shortcut:

  • Go to System Preferences
  • Keyboard
  • Shortcuts Tab
  • Select App Shortcuts in the left pane
  • Click the Plus button
  • Set Application to Keynote from the dropdown
  • Type the Menu command EXACTLY as it appears in the menu
  • Choose a key combination

Now you can change view with custom shortcut.

  • Excellent! You can use this to set up all sorts of shortcuts. I have several for positioning objects. Cheers!
