    I disagree, saving as a QT file is much preferred if you make interesting, animated presentations.

    Losing animation just kills the value of the presentation.

    I had the same problem and what is kindly suggested is in my opinion a workaround for a missing feature on the iPad. The same problem apply to videos where you can't set a video to loop....
    I sincerely hope that on next release of iOs or keynote it will be fixed.
    One more thing...some transition made on Mac are not available on iPad....

    What a show ... 3 pages of the same request ... yes, we all realize it is a $9.99 app, but COME ON, this is a BIG DEAL! the use of the iPad as a presentation tool for booths and other areas where ti would be great for HIGH visibility is now minimized!
    My work around is simple, I'm renting a large display screen and will use my PC with PowerPoint where looping is made simple and works w/o changing format or program ...

    I hope someone focuses quickly and gets this addressed though.

    I have spent the last several hours researching this as one main reasons I purchased this iPad was for that very reason...LOOP a presentation! I've installed Keynote and another more expensive application, I can get Keynote to make cool transitions on a timed basis ( a major drawback is I need to do it slide by slide), but the loop function is just not available, sorry...I've wasted time and now I feel money to find out this BASIC function is not part of this software, until it is, DON'T waste your money!

    I'd like to add my voice to this discussion.

    Keynote is in version 1.3 now, and the problem still exists!

    I'm really surprised... We are trying to use an iPad to show our keynote presentations for the announcements, and this problem prevents it from this use.

    Exporting as a QuickTime video is not a good option, because we want to allow people to control everything, including making small changes to the presentations, on the iPad.

    Judging from the recent update, it seems Apple isn't interested in adding a looping feature. If they were, one would think it would be added by this third update. Three updates is plenty of time to check the forum and see what features users think are missing from the app. Guess that's why you need to keep at least one Microsoft PC handy. Use the pad for play and the PC for actual work. PowerPoint gets it done is this case.

    Have people been posting suggestions to Apple? Don't they have a place where we can report bugs/missing features?

    Personally, I would consider this a bug.

    Isn't there a feedback form specifically for Keynote for iPad? The iPad one may get lumped with every other iPad problem.

    Thanks!

    If enough people got together and sent in a request for "loop" functionality, maybe they'll pay attention?

    I put a link to this discussion as well... maybe you should too?

    I have a different problem. I made the mistake of just going ahead and thinking they had all the bugs worked out.

     

    I put a presentation together and the tapped on loop.

     

    Now, i am locked into the loop and do not know how to get out if it.

     

    Cannot look at other presentations or make a new one

    Any ideas how to stop a keynote presentation. I tapped loop and now that presentation is what comes up when I tap the app for keynote on my iPad. I cannot shut it off, so I cannot make another one or do anything but watch the one that keeps looping.

     

    Hope you can offer an idea.

    I just created the same problem. I've tried a hard quit on keynote ad reboot on the iPad. Every time I return to keynote the build screen flashes and then the presentation starts looping. Any thoughts?
