This is aggravating because I have a 2012 iMac and I can't upgrade to use the Collaborative feature on keynote where we work from the iCloud.
The app continuously crashes and spends hours loading. I've uinstalled, reinstalled, reported the error, shutdown my whole computer and am still at a loss. please fix this.
I have made over 5gb of keynotes for my students. The program allows for great transitions and also animations within the slide which has been perfect for my humanities lectures showing how military forces swept through an area, or any other animations i have needed to make. powerpoint looks stiff and rigid by comparison.
Open a keynote presentation. It will use the nice new Big-Sur-style side bar. Now open a number of others in additioanlm tabs. The first tab will dispaly the modern sidebar with your thumbnails going all the way to the top of the window. Now switch to the other tabs. They will show the old style sidebar with the toolbar going the full width of the window *but* the thumbnails will be partially hidden under the tool bar. A celar drawing bug in the transition from the old style to the new in Big Sur. One year later the bug is still there in this new version. I've submitted a bug report on this twice. I live in Keynote daily, always with multiple presentations open in tabs. This bug is a real usability issue. Please fix!
I have used it since it first came out years ago and never looked back. Just like Pages and Numbers, it is less cluttered and bloated than MS PowerPoint, elegant, visually pleasing, versatile, stable, does everything I need it to do and more. My presentations always look great, and I often make them first in Keynote then expoert to PowerPoint if I need to present on a PC. It is also easy to use and works seamlessly across Macs and iOS devices, with the added safety and security that comes with using the Apple ecosystem. Apple apps set the standard for how Mac apps should be like. I only use PoerPoint when I have to, not because I want to. Thank you Apple!!
What the heck? Why no "Save As..." Feature? Is there ANYONE on the development team that actually produces presentation materials for a living? It seems the answer is a definite "no"
The interface is super intuitive, has a lot of functions to make not only a preso but an animation, video, gif. everything you want. Of course, there is room for improvement. But it definetly deserves more than 3.9 stars.
Needs to catch up to Google slides features. Some I think are necessary: • Grid set up like within Adobe inDesign • A live notification of where collaborators are currently working • Comment notifications. Users would like to know when your name is mentioned so changes can be made. Currently users have to manually search for their name. This could come up in a comment section or revealed through an email. I sure hope Apple dominates, especially in a WFH setting where collaboration is much more prevelant these days.
I used to use PowerPoint when I was using Windows and it was ok. After using Keynote, there is no way you could pay me enough to install PowerPoint on my Mac mini to work on presentations. Built-in LaTex equation editor along with the ability to downgrade my presentations to PowerPoint format makes Keynote an easy replacement for PowerPoint.
