    Hi all,

    I have a macbook and an apple remote and an iPod touch. Is there any way that I can control pdf slideshow (through preview) from an iPod touch app / mac apps that controls the remote? My iRed Lite does not work with snow leopard anymore =(

    I tried googling and couldn't find anything useful...

    Do you have Keynote? Can you download the iWork trial and just use Keynote for 30 days? If so, you can just drag and drop the pdf into keynote and make slides out of it.

    I have iWork '08, can I still do a free trial if I have that? I tried dragging pdf to Keynote '08 but it doesn't work :confused:

    Thank you that worked! However in snow leopard for some reason it does not want to appear in Keynote 08 correctly. Clicking "show package contents" and then quick viewing some of the pdf files made it work... so i'm not sure what happened, but i'm happy with my quick and dirty fix =)

    thank you!
