Video: Creating table and chart builds

Keynote also gives you good controls over how your Tables and Charts can build into a slide. Let me show you how I can build this Table in. I select the Table go to the Inspector, go to the Build Inspector, and here in Build In let me just choose a Wipe and have that from Top to Bottom. You can see here in the preview I can have it come in from Top to Bottom, kind of want to have this data filled to it kind of multiple lines coming in at once. So how I would do that? Well if I go down here to Delivery and click you can see I have a lot of choices about how the data flows into the table. Quite a bit. But since what I'm looking for is By Row to have sort of a flow on down, let me click on that.

Creating table and chart builds

Keynote also gives you good controls over how your Tables and Charts can build into a slide. Let me show you how I can build this Table in. I select the Table go to the Inspector, go to the Build Inspector, and here in Build In let me just choose a Wipe and have that from Top to Bottom. You can see here in the preview I can have it come in from Top to Bottom, kind of want to have this data filled to it kind of multiple lines coming in at once. So how I would do that? Well if I go down here to Delivery and click you can see I have a lot of choices about how the data flows into the table. Quite a bit. But since what I'm looking for is By Row to have sort of a flow on down, let me click on that.

We look at the preview we can see that's it working but that's really slow, drive you crazy. Because there are so many rows, it's building in each one at one second. So you can see the delivery and the duration of that delivery. That's a little slow. So let me double-click on this and actually I can get a 0.05 seconds per row. So now if we look at the preview, it's a little bit better. So now let me go to the More Options, and we can see that we have it set up, so the first row will come in on a click, and then all the other rows are also going to come in on a click. And I do not want to click each one of those rows I want them to happen pretty much all at the same time.

Notice that when I have a table selected, and there are two sections of that table, in terms how the builds are done, one is in a light blue and one is in a dark blue. But you can know that even though you are only going to taking action on these dark parts, it relates to something else. It's in the lighter color of that highlight. So I'm going to do Automatically after prior build. So each one will come in right after the other one, and let's see how that looks. Click Play, slide comes in, it's waiting for me to click, I'll click and in drops the table. Looks pretty good. Let's have a look at a Chart. Let me go to Slide 2. Let me close this down a little bit, I can drag this over. This is a flat two axis chart, and I'll click on this Chart Object, go to Build In, and let's say on this I'll have a Wipe but I'll have it from Left to Right.

Let me click on More Options, and let me click on the Delivery and see what my choices are with this chart. Here I can see Background First or By Series. Let's me choose Background First, and you can see in the preview that it just builds the frame of the background of the chart first and then it builds in the next part of the data itself. I like that. And again with this one I want that chart part to come in right after the background happens. So if I click on that chart and tell it's individually selected I can now tell that part of the build to work automatically after the background builds in.

Now here is an interesting thing about charts in Keynote. The Legend is kind of a separate object. I mean in many ways it's not a separate object but it's one of those hybrids where it has some characteristics of being independent and some characteristics of being a part of the chart. Right now it's not building in of the chart. It's an independent part of the chart when it comes to builds. So I want to add this to build in as well. It would be very subtle because I really do not need to call attention to this. I'm just going to have it build in very subtly. I'm going to have it build in with the first time that it comes in, just so that it appears in a little bit graceful way. It's very subtle but I think it will look pretty good.

Let's go to Play and try it out. So I hit the Advance key, in comes the background, in comes the data, we didn't even noticed too much that legend come in, but it wasn't also just sitting there waiting for something to happen at the very beginning. I'll hit Escape. Now one of the cool little features of Keynote in 09 is that they have added a lot of effects for 3D charts. Let me go to my Chart Inspector, select this chart, I'm going to change this chart. Right now it's a flat two axis. Let's go with the 3D stacked bar graph.

This might not be the best chart for the representation of this particular data, but here I want to demonstrate some of the 3D features. Let me go back to my Build Inspector, and since I have this chart selected let's me see what my choices are. Now up here above 2D Effects we see some new 3D Effects, and these will only come up when you are looking at 3D charts. So let me just sample Crane for this instance. You can see here in the preview it kind does a cool swoopy Crane. I can do Rotate. Let's try that. That's cool that rotates it. I can change the angle of that rotation, if I want to be steeper or longer or more dramatic.

Try Rotate & Grow. That's kind of cool. And then another new thing is the Delivery I can have it as a Cascade, and the Cascade means that each individual item will come up separately but right after another. And let me extend that Duration so it's a little bit more dramatic. That's kind of cool. So you can see just with two clicks we got this pretty sophisticated build. Let me hit Play here. Hit Advance. And it comes twists, builds, pretty nice. We can do a similar thing on this pie chart here. Click on this guy, in fact we have already put it on for it putting it on. Rotate & Grow, you can see I can do a Radio version with the Pie chart, where the different wedges come in from the different directions. I could do a Crane of the entire chart. I can have Crane where it's coming in All at Once. I like a Rotate & Grow on this one too with a Cascade.

Actually I like it better without the Cascade. I think that looks better. And I can change that angle too. Let's me hit Play to show you how it looks. I also want to point out that in this particular slide this text object, it was not a legend. This is an actual body text object from the master, and the reason we built that separately from the legend is that we wanted to have this flexibility when we are building in this chart. I will show you more options. You will see that in fact we have a separate build for the bullets. So the chart comes in that we have set up with a Rotate & Grow, and then on step two which is the bullets automatically after table builds in the bullets come in, and they come in as a Wipe from Top to Bottom.

So let's have a look at that again just so you can see that subtle difference. In comes the chart and then there comes our legend. It's the legend that we created ourselves so we have more flexibility with the effect of how it builds in. These new build features with 3D charts give your presentation an extra level of polish with hardly any effort on your part. So be sure to take the advantage of them if they fit into how your story is flowing.
