Working with Lists

Keynote treats bulleted text as a kind of list, and gives you full control over that list’s indentation, limited control over the kind of bullets it uses (text bullets or a single kind of image bullet built into the theme), and whether letters or numbers automatically precede items in the list. You can’t mix different bullet styles within a text box, but you can set some items in the list to have no bullets, as shown in red-circle-a.jpg.

To change text indentation:

  1. Select the text you want to change.
  2. Tap the Info button in the toolbar.

    The popover appears. If necessary, tap the List button to display the List pane red-circle-b.jpg.

  3. To indent text (shift it to the right), tap the Indent button.

    or

    To outdent text (shift it to the left), tap the Outdent button.

    The text moves as you command.

To use text or image bullets:

  1. Select the text you want to change.
  2. Tap the Info button in the toolbar.

    The popover appears. If necessary, tap the List button to display the List pane.

    or

    To use an image bullet, tap Image.

    The selected text changes to the bullet style you set.

To set lettered or numbered lists:

  1. Select the text you want to change.
  2. Tap the Info button in the toolbar.

    The popover appears. If necessary, tap the List button to display the List pane.
