Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

we should be able to record our presentation on a cd or dvd in this program?

You can export a Keynote presentation to a QuickTime movie, or as individual images (one per slide), both of which could be put on a CD or DVD for sharing. You could even use iDVD to make a TV-compatible DVD.

Thanks for all this information. But i guess you can not record from keynote a cd or dvd?

No, Keynote has absolutely no concept of dealing with optical discs. Nor would you want it too - it's a system level function for data discs, and something for iDVD for discs aimed at consumer DVD players.

Thanks!

Does anyone know how to "save as" with this version of Keynote? I thought "duplicate" would be the same thing, but it's not!

Duplicate is sort of what you want, in Lion... Jeff Carlson has an article about it here.
