    I've been trying to use Kenote and Pages, everytime I open tehm I can get to the initial screen, where it lets me choose between different templates, but everytime I choose one it crashes, shows me the beach ball until it quits ''unexpectedly''... any idea of why this is happening? I checked and it happens with Numbers as well... I lost my iwork cd's so I can't install it again... :confused:

    I would go look in ~/Library/Application Support for any keynote folder. Delete or rename any plist file you find there and try to launch keynote again. ~ is your home folder. You may have to turn on show hidden files to find the folder.

    Also check for updates to Mac OS X and iWork.

    Keynote's preference file(.plist) will be in Home Folder>Library>Preferences. Try trashing it. It may or may not solve the problem.

    What version of iWork and what version of Mac OS X? If you have misplaced your iWork disc, you can pay Apple for a replacement. Or if you have access to the Mac App Store, you can purchase the applications individually if you don't have a need for all 3.
