This is a bummer. I haven’t seen a compelling reason to upgrade to Keynote ’09. Looks like Apple wants to make one for iPad users.
I tried presenting from my iPad with Keynote and the iPad VGA adapter last Wednesday in Iowa. I was underwhelmed. Keynote for iPad does not support hyperlinks, which I use often in presentations. I also was disappointed there wasn’t a way to import a video clip on my iPad in videos into Keynote. I was hoping to see if I could get videos to play within Keynote on the iPad by importing an existing presentation I had made on my Mac previously, which has embedded videos. I was able to copy the presentation file to my iPad using iTunes, but when I tried to open it on the iPad in Keynote I got the above error.
Does anyone know if Keynote on the iPad presently will support / play embedded videos?
I was able to import my Keynote ’08 presos onto my iPad by first uploading them to Google Docs, and then viewing the preso on the iPad in Safari. When I chose to download the Google preso in PPT format, Safari displayed it and gave an option to open it in Keynote. That was a button in the upper right corner of the browser window. It would also be possible to work around this by exporting from Keynote ’08 into PPT and then using iTunes to import the file onto the iPad.
