    I'm downloading power point presentations from my university website and trying to open them with Keynote. It starts to open it up then just stops about a third of the way through the progress bar. The activity monitor says that keynote is not responding. So, is it possible to open PP files with Keynote?? Thanks

    Yes. But there might be formatting issues sometimes, but usually it is smooth sailing.

    Yes, it is possible to open powerpoint files with keynote. Try restarting your computer. That usually works for me when some apps don't respond.

    I wonder can you open .pptx files with older versions of Keynote? Food for thought I suppose...

    Try OpenOffice, it's free so you can use that in the meantime.
