Keynote is Apple's iWork application for creating effective and impressive presentations. In Keynote '09 Essential Training, presentation designer Craig Syverson teaches new and experienced Keynote users how to apply this program to its full potential. Craig demonstrates the entire creative process, from building basic slides with text and images and using the new built-in themes, to distributing the final product. Exercise files accompany the course.
Another method of organizing the slides is the Outline mode. I go over up here to the View toolbar, pull down the Outline and let it go. You can see what happened here is that the thumbnails of the slides went away and we are given a text based overview of what our slides have on them. Now where is this text coming from? It's a very good question. If I click here on slide 2 for instance, I can still navigate to the slides, just as if I have the thumbnails, and the important thing to know about the Outline mode is that the source of this text that is showing up here is coming from both the title text objects and the body text objects. So for instance, if I go here to slide 6 Proven By Troy Bayliss. This is a title text object. Let me go to the Inspector and show you that. I'm going to go to Slide Inspector. Appearance, off click Title, you can see of course that is the title text, and this is the body text showing up there.
Let me show you if I go to slide 8. Here we see in the Outline mode, Handling and these bullet points. Now as we know in slide 8, this was the title text object. This is a body text object. Notice "Performance-first" doesn't show up in this list. That's because this is a free text object. So lot of this harping we have doing about title text and body text has an implication in Outline mode. If you think in words more than pictures, then you would want to use body text and title text, so that you can have a very organized in working Outline View, when you get to that mode. It's also a really good way, if you want a very quickly go through and prove some of your key points. You don't have to go through the slideshow. You can look here and check spelling or check accuracy, as long as they are at least a Body text or Title test element.
We can change the view of this. Let me show you quickly here in Preferences. We can change the font size if we want to make it bigger or smaller. I'll close that out. You can do editing between slides. Copying text from one to the other. To me that's a little confusing, but you can do it. If that's the way you think, it could be a good way to work for you. Let me show you just a little something here. On this slide, you will notice in the Outline mode, it says (6 up) Handling. (6 up) is my term to say this is the 6 up slide, because it's a common theme. You can see it here in slide 9. I gave it a bit of a subtitle.
Well, where is that coming from? Well, in this particular slide, the only object on the slide you might recall is the shape. The rest of the slide is the master in the background, and you can see here under the Slide Inspector the Title is not visible, but if you recall, the Title is always there. So you can see here I shut off the Title, but I made a Title called (6 up) Handling. So that when I was in Outline mode, I could at least have an understanding of what that slide is about. Completely invisible on the final show, but it helps me here on the Outline mode, so that I had every slide labeled the way I want to. So if you are someone who thinks in words, or if you like to have a quick preview of the title and body text elements in your slide, Outline mode is the way to go.
