How to control whether iCloud files are kept on local disk

My Keynote files are automatically kept on iCloud. Is there a way to override this for certain files?

To clarify: I have a couple of fairly frequently used large Keynote presentations and usually, they are not on my Mac so when I fire them up, it has to download them. I want to tell the system to keep these files (but not all of my Keynote files) locally. I know I can turn off iCloud sync for all of Keynote; can I do it on a file by file basis?

Take a look at this.


Bingo!! Thank you. Knew there had to be a simple way.

It actually works? Color me amazed!

Coincidentally, Howard Oakley covered this very subject only yesterday.
