You can create complex motion animations in keynote using a variety of functions. An object can follow the path of a shape. You can also add scaling, rotation and other special effects. You can also build an animation step-by-step and combine changes into a single movement.

    Gary, I follow your instruction step by step but I can't get available the option "Make motion path from shape"

      This is a great idea in keynote and I am really wanting to use it. I have the latest version and no matter how much I try to send the star to the back or front, I cannot get "make motion path from shape" to work. It is constantly greyed out. I think the previous comment is also having the same problem. Macmost is great and if wasn't for Macmost, I would have sold my mac and gone back to horrible windows.

        Try creating a blank Keynote presentation. Just put one item on the slide, and try it with that. Get the hang of it first, and then try it in an existing project.

    I need take an object on a slide and move it to a specific location. Next I need to start a new slide and have the original object at the location it was moved to on slide one. I could do these easily with the old version of keynote but not with the new one. I may have as many as 25 objects I am moving on a slide and now I have to copy each position and paste a copy at this position on the next slide. It is taking me forever.
