How excellent.

I have used this application every day for the past 5 years to do a variety of things. Not only is this software good for presntations but that is just touching the surface of what keynote is capable of. I use this software for practically all drawing and visual designing I do, not once have I needed to install expensive profesinal software for these things. I have also sucessfully used it for tehnical drawings and been able to actually physically cut designs made on keynote using CAM equipment. The software is also great with animation. On its own iMovie is a limited video editor, however pairing it with kenynote allows many of features previously not included on iMove to be used. Combining these 2 apps has suited all of myvideo editing needs. Its overall simple non bloated intuitive interface has allowed me to make anything I wanted from form one application. How excellent.

Cannot open file 'for some reason'

For the last month or so now, I cannot open any Keynote files, without copying them off my system into iCloud. Then I have to remember to copy them back to system. No luck so far solving this issue. Also impossible to add images to keynote presentations without also copying them to the cloud. So good program (despite the lack of keyboard shortcuts), but impossible to really use at the moment.

High Seirra broke Collaboration

Collaboration has stopped working across all iWork apps. A neat feature is to be able to build a presentation with many people at the same time with live editing using the Collaboration option. Now it just doesn’t work. Keeps asking to move the file to iCloud, despite it being in iCloud. Even when pressing the button which says to move the file, nothing happens. Otherwise a great app. 1 star given hoping the devs take note.
