Adjusting the space between bullet list items (leading/spacing)
Click the Format icon in toolbar, then click the Text Tab. Under Style/Spacing, adjust the Line spacing, and/or the space before/after a paragraph.

Adjusting space between bullets and text:
Click the Format icon in toolbar, then click the Text Tab. Under Style/Bullets & Text. See screenshot here.

Setting a movie to play on click
Place your video in the Keynote slide and select it. Click the Format icon in the toolbar and select the Movie tab if it isn't selected for you. At the bottom, click the "Start Movie on Click" box. The movie will not play until clicked.

Changing a slide from one kind (template) to another:
Click to select the slide you want to change, then click the Format icon in the toolbar. Slide Layout appears. Click the drop-down menu icon and select the slide type from the available template styles.


I'll grant you that none of these things are handy compared to previous versions of Keynote. But as you can see, it's most likely because they moved something and we simply haven't found it.

When you think about it, these items make more sense where they're at now - we're just old farts that don't like change.
