Hiroshima to Kyoto on Kansai Hiroshima Area Pass

The Kansai Hiroshima Area Pass which I bought is not valid on the shinkansen between Shin-Osaka and Kyoto.

How do I travel from Hiroshima to Kyoto?

If I take the shinkansen from Hiroshima to Shin-Osaka, will I have to exit the station at Shin-Osaka, then re-enter to transfer to a local train from Shin-Osaka to Kyoto?

Thank you.
