I built a nice table within a slide.  Now I'd like to make other slides with exactly the same table format. For example: these new slides with a table should use the same table columns width scheme, the same backgrounds scheme, and so on. I'd like to do it for a large scale work (~ 30 slides).  What is the right way to either make a table format style or to make a master slide with a predefined table format?  I read the help entry "Defining Default Attributes of Tables" which is doing a nice tiny part of the job.

    You need to read the chapter; designing master slides and themes in the Keynote manual


    There are too many principles you need to know about to condence this chapter into a sentence or two.

    Reading that will get you going and if there are individual issues that you need help with post back.

    creating a master slide with tables text and graphics works perfectly for me so what you want can be done.

    Once a custom theme is created,  I can quickly and easily create a new project exactly based on the master layout design.


    Your work around of copying and pasting is illiminated by creating a master slide and a new theme.


    When you say you made a table with columns with centimeters, Keynote does not use physical measure such as cm or inches it only uses pixels.


    I think you are confused somewhere but I dont know where.
