    Are keynote files able to be opened using powerpoint? I have to do a presentation and wanted to use Keynote to do it, yet i don't have a laptop, and would have to borrow my roomate's, except that it's a dell. let me know if i have any exporting options into other windows based programs. thanks in advance.

    Keynote exports PowerPoint files, so just make your presentation in Keynote (don't bother with the transitions since I doubt they'll transfer) and then export as a PowerPoint file.

    That's it.

    i did an ppt export from knote with the cube transition and here is what i can assess:

    -bkgrnd is done as an image
    -trnsitions are done to use the closet matching ppt equivilent.
    -txt and fnts are done for you
    -all audio, qt, animation and non-supported graphics files are lost

    thats bout it. good luck

    if he did that, he couldn't control the speed of the slide show.

    There is an option whit QT

    When export a QT movie it gives you the option to save a QT interactive show and even gives you the option to control the speed of the animations and transitions. it works pretty good for me. I have given presentation to our sales force they can use in their crappy peecee laptops.

    Cheers
