It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

Keynote 1.0.1 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Keynote 1.0.1 Update -- Apple released Keynote 1.0.1 via Software Update, saying that the new version brings support for Japanese, French, German, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish to the presentation software. However, I was also able to confirm with Apple that Keynote 1.0.1 fixes a few unspecified bugs, making it a worthwhile download even for those who need only the English support. A few notes: on my iBook, which has relatively little free disk space, I was warned that Keynote works best with 1 GB of free disk space; although the Keynote box does make that clear as well, it came as a surprise to me. Also, Keynote must be installed on your startup volume. Keynote 1.0.1 is a 9 MB download. [ACE]
