Presenter Display still hamstrung

Many of the usability improvements in Keynote 6 are an improvement over Keynote 5.3, but the Presenter Display remains a huge step back, even in Keynote 6.2.

The biggest problem is the inability to customize the layout. In 5.3, you could move objects around and organize the display exactly how you liked them. I prefer to have my presenter notes take up the full vertical length of the display, with the current and next slides stacked on the left.

In 6.2, Keynote doesn’t give you this option. Keynote 5.3’s full drag-and-drop customization has been turned into Keynote 6.2’s rigid system that auto-arranges elements, and it does a bad job of it. I find it very difficult to give presentations with the bad options in 6.2.

And finally, exporting a PDF with presenter notes is still broken in 6.2. For some reason, if you include speaker notes in your PDF export, the actual slide content is shrunk to only take up half of its allotted space, which creates unusable PDFs.

PDF export was rock-solid in Keynote 5.3, of course.

It’s very disappointing that Keynote 6.2 remains a step back in these important ways.

Still not there

The app is much better with the new release, but even though Apple brought back some of the functions we lost with the unexplained step back of 6.0, there is still one thing I just can’t live without: Quicktime export with manual advance.

Well, for you to understand the need for that, I am a NAUI dive instructor, and I am in charge of developing new presentations of our courses. The distribution has been done in PowerPoint format, but with the more advanced Keynote, Quicktime was the new option, since not everybody owns a Mac. Now, I can’t do that anymore. So, I get two options: 1. Export to Keynote 5 and, after quite some time adjusting the presentation, generate a proper Quicktime movie. 2. Export to PowerPoint and spend a lot longer to do the same (since most of my animations are just lost, as this export mode works only for basic presentations). In both cases, once again, there would be no point to use Keynote 6.2.

Please Apple! Either bring back a proper Quicktime export or develop a Windows viewer, as Microsoft did for PowerPoint.

SOME IMPROVEMENTS but still bugs!

For this version: I add 2 stars for some improvement….but still lack one ability: copy vector image direclty from Adobe Illustrator to Keynote…therefore I still install Keynote ’09 to copy paste image ….

The new update is awesome, but bring some bugs … especially in the transition … in each transition before starting build in effect there is a delay for 1 to 2 seconds, when making video presentation it is a little bit annoying like the program is lagging … some build in effect like blur make more delay … I compare this with the previous version 6.0 … please fix this delay bugs….
