Is it possible to hang quotes in Keynote? I can't find a solution to this, but I've seen Tim Cook has it when he gives keynote speeches. If you know how, please tell me because it's different than InDesign. Thank you.

To manualy adjust hanging punctuation:

 

 

show rulers:      view  > show rulers

 

click in the paragraph where you want to change, so that the text cursor blinks

 

on the ruler, click and drag the left alignment marker (the downward pointing blue triangle) to the right, about the width of one word

 

click and drag the first line alignment marker ( the rectangular blue marker ) to the  left untill the quote marks are where you want them

 

click and drag the left align marker  to the extreme left
