    I like opening PowerPoint documents with Keynote, it is much faster than with Mac Office. But I hate the thing that it always ask me if I want to save changes when I close Keynote.

    And most of the times I only open them to see the presentation, I don't make changes. But since it isn't saved in my hard drive as a keynote document (only as a .ppt) it always asks me if I want to save changes.

    And strangely, this does not happens when I open Word documents with Pages. In Pages if I close the app it won't ask me if I want to save the changes.

    Did I explained myself??:eek:

    If you are just viewing them you could use QuickLook.

    I know it doesn't answer your question, but just a suggestion.

    the reason it is asking is because it can't natively open a ppt document, but converts it to keynote. so what you are looking at is the keynote document, which isn't saved anywhere. but i like the idea of using quicklook to check it out. quicklook = best feature of leopard.

    Or you can force-quit the app. It's harmless if you're not going to save anyway.
