Changing the Background on a Keynote Slide

When creating a presentation using Keynote for your students you may want to deviate from the background slide color.

Generally I start with a white background for my presentations, however sometimes a black background looks really nice. Open up the inspector. The 2nd icon is the slide inspector. By default you will be looking at slide transitions, click instead on the Appearance button. There you can change the color of the background slide color.
