Actually, when you import the file (created in Keynote with hyperlinks), it says:
Keynote doesn't support some aspects of the original presentation.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 3, 2010 5:14 PM (in response to David Ray1)Update: Text URL hyperlinks work, but they're ugly (they show up as, for example "Test Hyperlink<http:www.apple.com/>"
Object URL hyperlinks don't seem to work, and links within the slideshow don't work.
If you create a text link to another slide in Keynote on the Mac, then import the file into the iPad, you get the error message:
"Only web and email links are supported. All others were removed."Mac Mini C2D, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 3, 2010 6:19 PM (in response to David Ray1)Looks like you can just format text with "www" and it will hyperlink. Changing object opacity to 0 will make it hidden. Shame there is no hyperlinking within the presentation though. I'd pay $20 for that!

I'm really hoping it's something that is & will be easily fixed in a software update, unless someone here comes up with a work around.iMac G5
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 6:35 AM (in response to David Ray1)I too craved this basic keynote feature, even created special presentations in advance of iPad's release, only to find that object linking is not supported. I'm sure Apple will fix this enormous blunder with a quick update.iPad, Other OS, 3.2
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 8:30 AM (in response to David Ray1)I also was hoping to be able to create links from objects to other slides. There is so much potential to create interactive presentations, but the software falls short of making it a reality. I would love to create presentations that allowed branching and then export them for viewing a keynote viewer. I had also hoped for the ability to embed video and audio. With a coupled of additions, keynote could be used as a simple authoring platform. I will continue to look for a workable solution.Ipad
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 10:23 AM (in response to David Ray1)Was thinking about a hyperlink in a presentation on the iPad. Since the iPad doesn't allow more than one application to run at the same time, if you were presenting in Keynote on your iPad and happened to click on the hyperlink, either by mistake or on purpose, Keynote would be closed out and Safari opened to take you to your link. Then you go back to Keynote and you would have to start your presentation all over again. I would think disabling links in Keynote would be a lesser disruption, but that is me.Mac Pro, iMac (aluminum), PM G5, iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 2:25 PM (in response to David Ray1)I just thought of a possible work around, it's not ideal, but worth a try (since I live in New Zealand and don't have an ipad yet, it would be great if someone in the forum can try this out)
Try exporting the keynote presentation as a quicktime movie. In the export options menu, select "Hyperlinks Only". This will create a quicktime movie that has object hyperlinks built-in. Now we just need to import the quicktime movie into iPad, and play via iTunes to see if the hyperlinks work.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 6:18 PM (in response to ksun002)Oh thank you - i'm on my way to go sync this with the iPad and see if it works (worked on the mac at least!)
I'm 100% new to Keynote - but hyperlinks in my presentations is why i bought the App and the projector last week. I had no idea how to go about a work around.....
I'll report back if it works!
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 6:34 PM (in response to Tracey S in FL)This didn't work.
It just plays the movie at mach 2. I tried taking it into GoodReader and got the same results.
But thanks for trying to help!
Currently Being ModeratedApr 6, 2010 10:12 AM (in response to David Ray1)It looks like URL links will work in full screen mode, but links to other slides will not.Mac Pro, iMac (aluminum), PM G5, iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 9, 2010 8:27 AM (in response to J.K. ROFLing)URL links will not work with a VGA adaptor connected. Must quit presentation mode, then tap on the link. Keynote is NOT ready yet for classroom/business presentations.MacBook Pro 13 inche, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2010 8:42 AM (in response to David Ray1)I'll throw some more fuel on this fire. I grabbed the iPad version of Keynote thinking that I could import desktop presentations that include in-presentation hyperlinks only to find them stripped out. I had thought my firm could use this as a way to demo interactive wireframes (clicking on parts of a wireframe to go to specific screens) but without this (I would think) relatively simple feature it's pretty well useless.iPad, iPhone OS 3.1.3
