Pausing and Resuming a Slideshow

It is very common to need to switch gears during a presentation. For instance, you may want to switch to another application to show off a document or to access a file at the Finder level. Keynote offers several ways to pause a presentation:

  • To pause a presentation and display the current slide, press the F key (as in freeze). To resume the presentation, press the F key or spacebar.
  • To pause the presentation and display a black screen, press the B key. To resume the presentation, press the B key or spacebar.
  • To pause the presentation and display a white screen, press the W key. To resume the presentation, press the W key or spacebar.
  • To pause the presentation and hide Keynote, press the H key. To resume the presentation, click the Keynote icon in the Dock.
