I don't know any easy-simple way, but (as usual) Automator and scripting can provide some help. The basic idea is: You write the text with the Keynote's default font. Select the text. Press a hotkey - this will run the Automator script and replace the font for the selected text. so, to make this work: Start Automator. Select the type "Service". At the ...

You can change the Master Slide to get the fonts you want, and if you’d like this to be the default, then you can save this out as a template. (Caveat: I only have iWork ’11 in front of me, but I believe it's the same, for iWork ’09). To change the default font for a single slideshow: Open the complete set of master slides. View > Show Master Slides. ...

Make sure you have "Allow Exposé, Dashboard and others to use the screen" in keynote preferences under Slideshow. Then before you slide over to Safari press the "F" key to pause the slideshow, this prevents the slideshow from dissapearing. You can then slideover, or use Mission Control, etc without affecting the slideshow. There is a bug here, to go ...

Saving versions The first thing to know about Versions is that ⌘ Command+S now means "Save a Version". While you're editing the document, your work is automatically saved — but these snapshots are only created when a new version is created. So, rather than Save As, you can Save a Version. Of course, versions will be automatically created as well — every ...

Keynote files are zipped XML files. I created some little Apple Script to resize keynote files. Some caveats: It always resizes all slides, no selection possible. Maybe you can export the slides you want to resize to another file and only resize this, afterwards merging it back. It requires xsltproc which is not included in Mac OS X by default. Choose ...

There does seem to be a way to do this, but it involves mucking around inside the theme packages, so proceed at your own risk. Create the theme you want in 1920x1080 and 1024x768 sizes. (Also at 1650x1050, if you'd like that as an option). Save the themes with simple descriptors: theme_1920x1080, theme_1024x768, theme_1650x1050. Navigate to ...

If you change the extension to .mov then drag it over, it’ll ask you to optimize for iOS, at which point it will treat the GIF as a movie.

Most fonts have a check mark dingbat. In a text box, type in option v to see it. Then change the color to green like you would any other text. For additional clip at, look at the dingbat fonts already be installed on your system. Some common ones are webdings, wingdings and zapf dingbats.

I hope I unterstood what you want... I tried to create an example: scroll_example.zip Follow these steps: Create all your client names Group them all to one object (if they're all in one textbox, skip this step) Create an action for that object -> Move Set the action from bottom to top and specify the duration Place your object outside your slide and end ...

Keynote has this functionality built-in. In Keynote, go to the Play menu, then choose Rehearse Slideshow. You'll then have presenter mode on your single screen.

Yes - although most people are using the iOS based Keynote Remote these days, the old infrared (which is very thin / physically touchable and very reliable in dark rooms and easily hidden in a hand) works just fine. The Keynote '09 help shows what functions the various buttons will perform when you are in the various modes: Keynote window itself, ...

So, is there a general way to ensure my Keynote presentation time is uninterrupted? Unless I know I'll absolutely need network access, I just turn off all network interfaces while I'm giving presentations. This effectively blocks any auto-update routines from running without having to disable and then re-enable the feature in any piece of software I ...

If you're looking to control Keynote presentations and your Mac doesn't have a built-in IR port, you could buy an external receiver, but I suggest you use either: The Keynote Remote app for iPhone. This works over wi-fi and requires only a $0.99 purchase and no additional hardware to buy or set up. or A specialized slide advancer, like this Logitech ...

Ok so I got ahold of Apple support and they helped me resolve the issue by deleting the Keynote preferences file located at ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iWork.Keynote.plist They instructed me to move it to the Desktop for backup purposes and then reboot the system, after rebooting and opening Keynote again the file was regenerated and the issue was ...

Create a slide with the background you want, then copy that background. Go the master slides section, click on the master slide you are using, and paste the background onto the master slide. All your slides (that use that master slide) will have the same background.

I also wanted this effect , and am getting close to what I want by setting the first slide transition to 'Magic Move' with zero delay and Start Transition on 'Automatically', and then duplicating the first slide about 25 times, and incrementing each segment data value on each slide to get close to 'smooth clock winding' action on 'Play'

Keynote for iOS does not support this. Apparently Apple does not provide any mechanism for screen-recording (video) within iOS 7, and will not permit any third-party app that enables this. There have been some apps that can do screen recording on iOS 7, but they require jailbreaking the device, and are not authorized by Apple through the App Store. The ...

I wanted to point this out in case you hadn't tried it. This blog was the first result in google from searching for iwork disable reg. If it doesn't work, you might ...

You can export it as a QuickTime movie and choose the Manual Advance Playback mode. It will behave exactly as a Presentation (click to advance and so on) and you will not loose any of the effects (animations, transitions, etc). Once you have it in Quicktime then you can just present it in a window. Make sure you select Full Quality so you get the best ...

You have several possibilities. The easiest for you would be probably be using Screenflow. It allows you to record what happens on the screen (the presentation) AND the camera input. It also allows you to do some simple post-production, like focusing on the screen or on the camera.

No, unfortunately there's no way to do such a thing (at least to my knowledge). However, a quite effective workaround is to select all the items you want to apply to other master slides, by clicking all the items with ⌘ or ⇧ down, then copy them (⌘C) and paste to all other master slides. Luckily, Keynote doesn't move pasted items when pasting on another ...

For "big" presentations I run Keynote and give the preso from a separate demo account. I have a docked folder of shortcuts to things I might need—DropBox account, webmail access to my email, etc.—but the only login items for that account are Caffeine and Quicksilver. If I'm giving a workflow demo I do sometimes use my main account, and generally follow ...

I figured out a way to do this. It isn't perfect. It's limited to being useful against solid colour backgrounds. If you're using a gradient background or a complex image this won't work. Add a mask in the form of a rectangle over top of each bullet point. You don't need to be super precise. Just get the rectangle to cover all of the bullet point text. Do ...

The versions are not embedded in the files, but instead get stored elsewhere. Due to the nature of how Lion stores versions, small files get saved entirely, but larger files can track only the parts of the file that changed in fairly snazzy ways to reduce the chance that some trivial change to a very large file uses more than a trivial amount of version ...

Zamzar claims to convert Keynote files to different formats (including PowerPoint) online. I don't use Keynote, so I can't vouch for the quality of the conversions, but here's one review of the free file conversion service.

The substitutions for Pages.app are stored in: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iWork.Pages.plist Specifically they are in Root/kSFWPAutoSubstitutionArrayProperty. The format is a an array containing dictionaries with the keys replace, with and on. The Global Substitutions are located at ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist. Specifically, they are ...

I recommend you just delete Numbers and Keynote using Finder. The Mac App Store will detect the missing apps and allow you to reinstall them in the future if you ever need them. Alternatively, you can use AppCleaner to delete them. This will remove all associated preference/cache files. This is usually superfluous unless you have an actual need to delete ...

Use the Inspector tool to add build-in and build-out transition to your texts and cross. You'll have 4 build order steps : cross fade in cross disappear text "20%" disappear text "40%" appear Play with duration and 'start build' settings to obtain desired effect. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X-5AizWIJE for a screencast ;)
