I am really surprised because I just buy today Keynote for Mac (thinking that it will be much more easy to work on, and that it have more options). I've needed it because I have some PPT presentation with animation that does NOT work on IPAD and then I had several test with Keynote but all test have done give me the same result >>> I loose all animaton even if I have created my slides on Keynote (and have not been imported from PPT)
Please any help on that... Why I cant see any animation (because it works well on the preview on my Mac in Keynote) but as soon as I open the file (PPT, PPS or .key) no animation anymore
:( :mad: I have paid 15 euros for it !!! grrrr
Double check that the File type is not PPTX e.g. office later than office 2003 onwards. e.g PPT of Office 97 2003 Presentation
To get better compatibility while in Powerpoint save the files as PPT (office 2003)
You will find apaprt from font incompatibilities that most transitions will work (both Slide and object transitions)
Things to keep in mind when creating PowerPoints:
If using office 2007 onwards (PPTX) avoid usinging SmartArt. If it's a must then avoid having transitions within SmartArts.
SmartArts do not yet convert well in Keynote and will get all messed up.
When converting a PPTX with Smart art to PPT you'll find when you open in Keynote the Formatting is correct but everything becomes a single image and uneditable. Which can be good if it's the final version.
Another option if formatting is of most importance and you don't do transitions or sounds is to save the powerpoint slide as a PowerPoint PICTURE Presentation.
Hope that helps.
Sorry I'm no help for those without a Microsoft Powerpoint Installation available
