Question: Keynote SmartArt

Is there an equivalent in keynote of SmartArt of MS Powerpoint, or a way to do a similar action?

Thank You

Question marked as Apple recommended

Understand now, Keynote is limited to a simple set of vector graphic objects, as described earlier.

There is a limited amount of clip art which is editable; click the shape button in the toolbar and either click a category from the list or drag the scroll bar to see whats included. You can easily create your own by using the basic shapes and lines.

Sorry, I don't understand any of this.

these clips remain static, and have no dynamics with the editing of a list

If you are asking how do I place an object on a slide, then:

If I want the guitar shape:

  • click the Shapes button
  • click the arts category
  • click the guitar icon and the guitar shape is placed on the slide
