Customer Reviews

Stay far away from the latest build of Keynote

If you want to stay productive, then stick with the prior build of Keynote. The latest version strips out so many features and functions from the previous build that it is almost a different product altogether. Simple things like copy and pasting an object repeatedly no longer copies and pastes the object neatly aligned and spaced apart as the last version did. Now it just pastes it in some random location. Before, you could hold the shift key down to drag an object vertically or horizontally. Now holding the shift key makes the object bounce in random directions, or perfectly drag diagonally which I never do(do you do this all the time? I think we drag objects horizontally and vertically far more often than diagonally). Every function that used to be simple is now a laborious task of digging through menus or guessing where things have been relocated or renamed.

This used to be, in my opinion, one of the best tools for wireframing and prototyping. I know it was not built for this, but it served this purpose exceedingly well. Perhaps Apple caught wind of this and decided to eliminate all features that facilitated this, to bring it back to being a “dumb” slideshow player. I am almost certain now that I will be moving back to the warm and loving embrace of Powerpoint where I came from.

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.

New Keynote is an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you kidding me? I just installed the new “upgraded” version of Keynote and it is an absolute Nightmare. Apple wake the heck up!!!!!!!! Can’t you see that there are hundreds of comments on blogs, apple forums, reviews even here that are saying that this is an absolute train wreck of an upgrade.

First of all we are using keynote for our office, I happen to work for one of the largest media companies on earth and simply because of the fact that the new keynote is such a pain and has so many old features missing, and is so difficult to use (upgrade should be adding features, not rewriting the entire program to have to be re-learned again) that we are not updating our OS for fear or having to use this wretched program. Not only is it not compatible with the old and new, some of the most used features, (exporting files in and out to begin the massive list) are missing. I upgraded on my laptop and now if I work on it here, none of my colleagues can see the document without having to upgrade.

Honestly Apple this is one of the worst upgrades you’ve ever offered and I’m beyond livid having to deal with this. Do us a favor and offer the old version with the new OS. Save yourself companies of angry costumers cursing you and your technology.

Sincerely a loooong time loyal costumer who should be acknowledged.
