In the new Keynote '13, I'm not able to set a slide transition animation, appear after a previous build. The slide transition doesn't even appear in the buildoverwiev window.

I have a headline, I have assagined an build out animation to, this starts with a click, after that has happen I would like the slidetransition to happen automatically. But as it is now I can't choose to have the slidetransition happen after previous, as it dosen't appear in the buildoverwiev. I can only force the slidetransition with another click.

Any fix to this?

    To be correct; the latest Keynote is version 6.1 not 13.


    Slide transitions are not builds, they are a separate type of effect. Only Builds appear in the Builds Order List. Builds are effects for objects, transitions are effects for slides.


    The effects you want can easily be achieved however;


    to add the build to the object on the slide:

    click the object on the slide to select,   Inspector > Animate > Build Out > Add an effect

    to add a transition for the slide:

    click the slide in the Navigator pane to select,   Inspector > Animate > Add an effect >

    select a transition effect


    to action the  transition after the build:

    in the Start Transition  dropdown menu, seect Automatically
