Copying or Removing Object Builds

After you’ve set up an object build, you can easily copy it and paste it onto another
object, so that the two objects behave the same way. Or you can remove an object
build using the Build inspector.

To copy an object build from one object to another:


Select the object on which you’ve already set up the build as you want it.

Choose Format > Copy Animation.


Select the second object and choose Format > Paste Animation.

Note: You can only paste an animation on a type of object that’s able to accept it. For
example, a build effect that’s specific to text, such as Bouncy, can’t be pasted to an image.

Here are ways to delete an object build:
In the Build inspector, click More Options to open the Build Order drawer. In the Build


Order drawer, select the build you want to delete and press Delete.
Select the item for which you want to remove the build effect, and then choose None


from the Effect pop-up menu in the Build inspector.

About Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks are navigational elements that you can create to help you move through

trigger certain actions, such as opening a preaddressed email message or another
Keynote presentation.

Hyperlinks can be especially useful in self-running presentations, such as those that
might run in a kiosk. For example, you might set up hyperlinks to lead viewers down
an information path in your presentation or to disclose information when the viewer
chooses to follow a link.

About Making an Object into a Hyperlink

You can turn text, images, and shapes into hyperlinks that perform any of several
actions when you click them during a presentation. When you make an object into
a hyperlink, it’s marked with a curved-arrow badge on the slide canvas; this badge
isn’t visible when viewing the presentation. But text that’s been made into an inline
hyperlink is underlined; the text underline is visible when viewing the presentation,
unless you choose to reformat the text without it.

The small blue arrow (visible only while you’re
editing a slide) means the item is a clickable
