Using Transitions and Builds In Keynote

Use transitions to make moving from one slide to another more interesting. Use builds to add animation to objects as they appear and are removed from the slides. There are a variety of transition and build options, and each can be customized.

    Thank you! This really helps in transitioning from Keynote V.9 to the new version of Keynote that comes with Mavericks.

    Is there still a way to crop pictures with geometric shape?

      Yes. Add a shape. Then drag an image into it.

    great one! always love the show! can i also do batch tweaks to transitions and builds?

      Try it, you’ll see. For instance, you can select multiple slides and apply a transition to all of them at once.

    Thanks for the regular newsletter – very useful.
    I’m considering installing Mavericks but I’m concerned that my existing Keynote files will not work with Keynote version 6.0.
    Any advice?

      They may not. But you can still open them in the older version of Keynote. Installing the new version shouldn’t delete the old one. In fact, installing Mavericks doesn’t do anything for Keynote — it is a separate download through the Mac App Store.
