    Hi everyone i am new to Keynote, i have been using powerpoint for a long time but the new version just sucks! i love keynote a lot better! i was able to create really good presentation there but i cannot present it....! why? everytime i try to hook it up to the projector i get something like this:

    i really want to show my presentation that i created on keynote! i tried converting it to powerpoint but all the special effects i used on keynote went bye bye and i do not want to re-do it!! please can anyone help me figure out how to present it using a projector or a tv! (i have the tv cable thing for my macbook) is there some type of setting i have to click on?

    i think the easiest way to solve the problem is to turn off the "use alternate display to view presenter information" option in the Presenter Display portion of the preferences.

    You are selecting "Rehearse Slideshow." Try selecting "Play Slideshow" instead.

    Is the the projector mirroring your display or extending it...that picture is it of your computer screen or the projector?
