Why keynote and pages do not show the content in the middle?

    I just started to use the keynote and pages in from the iwork 9 and something is very strange, none of the them really fills the screen, both of them uses some half of the screen and leave the other parts empty.


    I am wondering whether its the only behavior or it can be configured to fill the entire screen when we design a presentation or write some document file.

    For example the following keynote ppt just convers the left side of the screen and not all of it.

    Well, it just shows you the presentation at 100%. If you want it to be bigger, select a bigger zoom factor at the bottom left at the screen or choose a bigger presentation size (in pixels).

    The same applies to Pages. Just select a bigger zoom factor.

    Ugh! Every Keynote user will cringe reading this. Call it a Keynote slide or a Keynote deck. Please don't call it a Keynote PowerPoint.

    P.S. If your keynote also doesn't fill the screen when you are in show mode, go in Preferences and check the box to enlarge your presentation full screen.
