    Starting up a presentation on Keynote. Slideshow is set up but with the slides I use Build In on, when I play the slideshow, i have to press the direction button to make them appear. How do I fix it that it just plays straight through without having to do this? Thank you!

    You can automate the transitions between the slides, by selecting the slide Inspector in the Inspector Panel. Click the Start Transition dropdown and choose Automatically. You can change the delay in the panel next to the dropdown.


    However I think the problem that you have is automating the Build transitions on the slide itself. To automate these click the build Inspector in the Inspector Panel. Click the More Options Button at the bottom.


    A Build Order Panel will appear, then click start build dropdown and choose Automatically after transition.

    Thanks James! Don't need that info at the moment, but I'm saving this post for later. I'm sure it'll help the OP as well....
