- A font family, like Roboto.
- A background color.
- A color palette.
I like Roboto for 3 reasons: It is free, it is professional, and it has enough styles and glyphs. I have been starting to use Keynote's Color Palette just a few week and it has helped me speed out my work and keep my work consistent.
1. Getting down to only 1 master Slide
1. Let's start from with a default template, say "White".
3. I have added the Rule of Thirds to my white template for better placement of the object on the canvas, however this is not the standard behavior. Now delete the default slide. A dialog will open asking to choose a one master slide to be the new default, choose the blank slide. The tick mark should now be on the blank master.
4. Delete all other masters.
2. Setting the new font
The White template's default font is Gill Sans, but I want to change the template to use Roboto.
1. In the master slide add a new text object.
Important! If you added the Text object in the master slide, remember to delete it.
3. Changing the background1. In the master slide open the Inspector and go to Slide Inpector > Appearance and change the background.
Now you can save your new Theme. Go to Menu File > Save Theme.
4. Adding a new color paletteColor palettes do not belong to a Keynote's theme. You can added in any moment in any visual stack you are working on.
1. Open the color dialog.
2. Click on the color palette tab.
3. Click on the settings > New.
4. Click on the settings > Rename and give it a name you will remember. I'm using city names.
5. Select each color and move it to the grid on the button.
