    On mac's, what key is the up arrow?
    New slide on keynote is the apple key, N, and arrow key.
    I pressed the up key and nothing happened, what does the arrow stand for?

    I don't think I understand the problem. The up arrow is the up arrow.

    Or maybe you mean the page up/page down buttons, which should be FN key and up/down?

    I'm trying to figure out how to get a new slide on keynote with out going to slide, new slide, blah, blah
    shortcut key.
    If I push arrow, apple, N, it thinks that I want a new background?
    But if use the menu, it gives me the background that I wanted

    Makin any sense

    if it's an up arrow drawn like an outline, I believe it's wanting you to push shift there ... found that one out by accident one day

    weird it just doesn't say SHIFT+COMMAND+N

    but yeah, try the SHIFT key there
