    I have recently designed a slide in keynote that i would like to, make into a a5 size document, for use as a flyer to promote my business. I cannot however resize the slide to fit an a5 document in pages upon copying and pasteing it into pages. Is there any way to make a slide bigger when copying and pasteing it?

    i am new to publishing and appreciate that the software i am trying to use was not designed for this purpose. But i am fairly happy with the way this "slide" looks. I have tried editing using the same texts etc from scratch in the pages docement and i cannot push the text box where i want to push it too i removed the header and footer but still not joy pages wont allow it.

    I am hoping you guys can help me out by telling my a workaround on this issue?

    If not would you recomend purchasing new software if so which?


    many thanks guys i really hope you can help!

    You can export from Keynote as an image. File Menu>Export>Images.
    Then just drag and drop into Pages.

    here you go just print right from keynote.
    also what i do a lot of the times is youtube it to find an answer. the macs are nice because you can screen record everything and a lot of people make vids to help others out. my first month on a mac i was youtubing everything to find out how to do all the tricks and features

    you have to make your own with shapes, then open inspector and go to graphic to image fill an image and you can put any image to fill the space. you just have to make layers to make the boarder. thats what i normally do to put a boarder around something in keynote. or find a nice boarder that is a jpeg and use it to fill the edges
