I just made the switch to Mac. In PowerPoint, I used to be able to select a certain slide theme or design but choose a different color of it. How can I do that with Keynote? I've been googling for hours just to do this.
If you want to change the appearance of all the slides:
- While creating a new document, choose any template.
- From the menubar, select View > Show Master Slides.
- Select the layout you want to edit from the navigator pane on the left.
- On the Toolbar, click on Inspector (“i” icon).
- Choose the second tab icon (slide icon) in the Inspector window. Click on Appearance.
- Here you can specify any background for the slide. It can be an image, a colour, a gradient or a tint.
If you just want to change the appearance of the current slide, follow steps 4 to 6.
To change the style of text for all the slides:
- Follow steps 1 to 4.
- Choose the capital “T” icon in the Inspector window.
- Select the text whose colour, font, etc. you want to change.
- In the inspector window, there are various properties like text colour, character spacing, etc. which you can change.
- You can change the font from the toolbar.
To change the style of text for the current slide, just follow the steps without opening the master slide.
there's a simpler answer. choose whatever slides you want to use, go to view> lightable, then choose command A (select All), go to Format on the right and edit background as you want.
