How do i view a file made in iwork, in my windows OS computer?
I'm not a Keynote user myself, but you should have several options. You should be able to save your Keynote presentation in PowerPoint format, which would allow Microsoft PowerPoint to open the file on either a Mac or PC. You should also be able to save it as a PDF, which would allow Adobe Acrobat (or Acrobat Reader) to open the file.
yea, i tired those both...
i changed the .key extension to .ppt, then archived it into a zip and emailed it to myself... went on my windows computer, unzipped it then clicked on the ppt file, MS powerpoint started to open but then said it cannot open the file because its not a powerpoint file.
i then tried changing the .key to .pdf... it changed, but then when i tried to open the .pdf file on my mac, it gives me an error
Go to the 'File' menu and select 'Export'. You can then save your Keynote presentation as quicktime, PowerPoint, PDF, etc...
You're just changing the file extension not the actual type of the file. So Powerpoint was right - it wasn't a powerpoint file (it was a keynote file with a ppt extension). As LifeIsCheap said, you need to actually create the file in another format.
You can also save the file as a quicktime movie, but like the others said you have to convert/export/save as (whatever it is, haven't used it) within keynote.
Wish I had keynote...
You can also export it as a Flash file. Not all the transitions will be preserved, but the presentation can be played in a Web browser and any clickable links you've created will be functional.
Wow! Now I really want keynote (adding keynote to the great wish-list-in-my-mind)
