Creating Object Builds

General object builds work much the same way as the previous builds in this chapter. The only difference is that you will be working with any element that you can place on the Slide Canvas, including text boxes, shapes, graphics, or movies. Actually, to Keynote, anything on the Slide Canvas is an object, including bulleted text boxes, tables, and charts, so you can animate almost everything.

When you are animating multiple objects, you can control the order in which those objects appear, and each object can have its own build style, direction, and delivery options. So you can, for example, have a slide with bulleted text that moves in from the right side, a graphic that twirls in on the left side, and a title box that drops in from the top (Figure 9.17). Using the Build Order drawer in the Build Inspector, you can set the order in which objects appear on the screen. For each object, you can choose to have it appear after you click the mouse, with the prior object, or after the prior object.
