    I am trying to send a PDF or PPT file from Powerpoint, via email attachment, to Keynote. The instructions say just click on the icon and 'open with Keynote', but the Keynote option is not in the box. I have downloaded Keynote correctly but it doesn't seem to be recognised in the 'send t' box

    Can anyone help with this

    Cheers

    Bob

    This will only work if you use .ppt or .pptx format. Keynote cannot read a PDF format presentation.

    No - just .ppt and .pptx. It can, however, export in .pdf format, so maybe that's where the confusion came from...
