Adjust the Order of Your Slides
As you’re creating all of the slides for your presentation, you’ll see thumbnails of them along the left-most side of the screen. At any time, you can rearrange the order of the slides by tapping and holding down one of the thumbnails and dragging it up or down to the new desired location[md]allowing you to modify the presentation order of your slides.
If you simply tap on one of the thumbnails, you’ll have the ability to cut, copy, delete, or skip a specific slide. While a thumbnail is selected and highlighted, you can also tap on the animation icon (the diamond-shaped icon that’s located in the upper-right corner of the screen) to add a slide transition effect (shown in Figure 13). This is done from the Transitions window that appears. You’ll notice an Effects and Options icon at the bottom of this window, which provides additional command options for customizing the slide’s transition effect you’ve selected.

To save your transitions and return to the main Keynote screen, tap the Done icon that’s located in the upper-right corner of the screen.
Showing Your Presentation from the iPad
There are so many ways to customize slides and presentations using Keynote, you’re mainly limited only by your own creativity and imagination. Whether you’re making presentations to important customers or clients, trying to solicit new business, or using a digital slide presentation to convey important information to your superiors, coworkers, or subordinates at work, you’ll discover many innovative ways to use your iPad as a powerful presentation tool when you add the Keynote app and become proficient using it.
The good news is, once you learn how to use many of the formatting features built in to Keynote, you’ll find those same commands and functions also work when using Pages and Numbers on the iPad, which are also part of Apple’s iWork for iPad suite.
