Create a Keynote outline

Starts a new presentation by focusing on the content/order over the design.

This shortcut uses Keynote’s donated action for “Create Presentation in Outline View,” which generates a new document and switches the view from the traditional focus on the slide itself (and past the table view) to the unique Outline mode.

This mode makes the main titles of each page the focus in a reorderable list – there’s controls like “Indent” and “Outdent,” which can actually turn separate pages into sub-bullets on the page above it.

Overall, this mode encourages you to outline all the material for your presentation first, then actually use the template feature to change the designs programatically on each page (rather than making a mess of things, like I tend to do).

I like this shortcut because 1) it taught me this mode exists, 2) having it easily accessible means I might actually think to use it, 3) it makes organizing complex thoughts into a logical sequence (for something like a video) into something I might try more often with Keynote.
