Keynote 5.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Those who work with large Keynote presentations will want to pick up the just-released Keynote 5.1.1, since Apple claims it addresses issues when working with large presentations in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (the update applies to Keynote running under 10.6 Snow Leopard as well). Apple also claims “improvements in stability and accessibility.” ($19.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update via Software Update or the Mac App Store, 29.94 MB)

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.
