This lesson will help you to understand what Master Slides are and how to use them.
When to use
Every built-in Keynote theme contains a collection of Master Slides that define how new slides added will look. In this lesson, we will learn how to create our own Master Slides.
Any and all of the included themes can be modified to our liking.
To make a change to an existing Master Slide, we first need to view our Master Slides. We do this by going to View > Edit Master Slides.
The bold blue line at the bottom is a reminder that we are editing Master Slides.
When editing Master Slides, we can remove or add slides as needed. When modifying a built-in theme, the changes we make are non-destructive to that theme.
Objects added to a Master Slide will automatically be added to every slide that uses that Master Slide as its basis.
One limitation we have when working with Master Slides: we can’t include motion (builds). Outside of that, we can add any object type we want (even video).
