    Can I do something like this in Keynote?

      You can create custom shapes, but there is no text wrapping in Keynote as far as I can tell.

    It would be helpful if you start your video by saying if you are in a Page Layout or Word Processing Document since Pages no longer says which you are in at the top of the document. I had to listen to this one a few times until I caught you mention that you were in a WP document. Makes a difference.

      You can do this in both. If using page layout, you’ll need to create the text box yourself, of course.

    I tried this in both WP and in Page Layout. If I put my photo on either first, “Send to back” is not active either by the Menu or the tool bar. ???

      Makes sense that if it is the only element that you can’t send it to the back because there is nothing for it to go behind. You can send it to the background though (different menu choice, different function).
