How to set up "auto-advance" on Apple Keynote

Screen shot 2010-01-11 at 10.58.55 PM In order to enforce the slide rules at Ignite we had to figure out how to make the slides auto-advance. If you’re practicing for an Ignite talk you should definitely practice with the slides on autopilot.

First, select all of the slides at once. Go to the “Inspector” floating window and select the icon at the top left, second from the left (its a rounded rectangle icon).

Change “Start Transition” from “on click” to “automatically” and then set the delay to 15 seconds. We’ll be using a Dissolve transition. Then hit play!

    Thank you! works as advertised.

  2. I imagine there are lots of souls like me, who come across different beneficial blogs or web sites by luck. Your blog seems to have got a solid community and a level headed blogosphere presence. Can I take part of your post to my blog?

  3. Thanks! I’m giving an Ignite-style speech for a class, and this is just what I needed to know.
