10 Add cus­tom themes

If you’ve cre­ated cus­tom themes on your Mac, you can add them to your iOS de­vice so you can use them there. If you’re set up with iCloud, the theme saved on your Mac should ap­pear in the pre­sen­ta­tion manager with a spe­cial badge on it. Just tap on it and then tap In­stall.

Al­ter­na­tively, you can save out the .tem­plate file from Key­note on your Mac and then send it by Air­Drop to your iOS de­vice, email it to your­self as an at­tach­ment (then open it in Key­note from Mail), or even drop it onto a We­bDAV server if you hap­pen to have ac­cess to one. To ac­cess a pre­sen­ta­tion that’s stored on a We­bDAV server, tap the + sym­bol at the top-left of the pre­sen­ta­tion manager.

11 In­stall cus­tom fonts

If you use a cus­tom font in a pre­sen­ta­tion cre­ated on a Mac – per­haps to main­tain a cor­po­rate iden­tity or just be­cause you like how it looks – you’ll be dis­ap­pointed that you can’t in­stall that font onto your iPad or iPhone. In­stead it gets re­placed with one of the de­fault, built-in fonts on your de­vice. Ah, but you ac­tu­ally can in­stall cus­tom fonts on iOS de­vices, thanks to a tech­ni­cal fea­ture iOS 7 and 8. Even bet­ter, there’s al­ready a third-party app that lets you do it eas­ily – go to any­font-app.com – but be care­ful that your font li­cences al­low this.
