Ratings and Reviews
Almost perfect … but has a video glitch that is still not fixed
I use Keynote for our corporate presentations. Used in a national training tour to thousands of sales associates. We use HD videos and multimedia and appreciate unique Keynote features such as transtition overlays during video playback. Much easier and far more stable than the competition. However our presentations are between 2GB to 3GB in size and when you play the presentation in order everything is fine. If you click links and use them to move back and forth in the presentation you’re still good to go. However if you use the navigation bar to switch slides then transition to a slide with video … the video no longer plays as it should (neither automatically or if click to start) unless you go forward and then backwards and then click to start. This issue will continue until you exit and restart the presentation. This has been an issue for two revisions. Hope it's addressed soon.
Crashes with high Sierra
keeps crashing on high Sierra, completely unusable
Adding a soundtrack
When I try to add a soundtrack as it tells me under help, it will not let me click it the music thing in the tool bar and is very frustrating. Wish it worked because I am trying to put together a slideshow. Its very dissapointing.
