    A friend wants my help fine-tuning his daughter's science poster... he sent it as a Keynote file in 2009 version -- my older 2008 Keynote won't open it. I'm too cheap to fork out the $79 to update my iWork software.

    So, I have one question and one request:

    -- Does Keynote allow saving a file to the older version? (I realize some effects may be lost.)
    -- Would anyone on this board with 2009 Keynote be willing to re-save the file for me?! (It's not overly large... 10 MB.)

    Keynote 2009 does give the option to save as a 2008 file. You can send me the file if you wish and I will convert it. (Better be no malware ;))
