Chapter 14. Creating Custom Themes > Creating a Theme from an Apple Theme

Creating a Theme from an Apple Theme

Starting with one of the Apple Keynote themes makes creating your own theme much easier because you have a foundation of master slides to build from. From there, you can simply add graphics on top of the existing theme, or use it as a starting point for your own custom work.

Apple includes anywhere from 11 to 17 master slide layouts in each of their Keynote themes (Figure 14.1). Sticking with those layouts and names to begin with is usually a good idea, because it makes things easier for the user: they can switch themes in the middle of building a presentation, and as long as the master slide names match, the user's slides will use the equivalently named master slides in the new theme. You can add more master slides to your custom theme.
