How to Embed Text in Keynote


When you create a slideshow using Keynote, Apple's presentation program that is part of the iWork suite of applications, you can combine images, videos, sounds and text. For example, you could open your slideshow with a series of images of your company's factory and then decide that you want to label the images with text that explains what your viewers are looking at. You can easily embed text in your Keynote slideshow presentation.

  • Launch Keynote on your Mac.

  • Click "File" and then click "Open" if you want to open a Keynote project that you have previously saved.

  • Click the folder containing the Keynote file, click the file to select it and then click "Open."

  • Click "File" and then click "New." The Theme Chooser window opens.

  • Click a Theme template that you want to use and then click "Choose." A new Keynote document based on the theme opens.

  • Click the "Text Box" button at the top of the Keynote application window. A text box appears in the Keynote window with the word "Text" inside it.

  • Click the word "Text" in the text box and then type the words that you want to embed in the slide. Click the text box and drag it if you want to reposition it on the slide.

  • Click the "Inspector" button at the top of Keynote window if you want to change the text's color or alignment.

  • Click a text alignment tab to switch the alignment to left, center or right justification.

  • Click the "Fonts" button at the top of the Keynote window if you want to change the text's font.
