I have a keynotepresentaion. At one point I´d like to stop, ask the audience a question and write down the answer on an exisiting slide so that the audience can see it in realtime.
Is this possible?

    Keynote cant do this.


    The absolute best solution is to use the software supplied with the interactive white boards from

    Promethian Quizdom or Softwall, but you have to own one of the boards to be able to get the software.


    What we do is use Stikies, but Text Edit or Pages will do also,  they are allready installed on our Macs and dont incur any extra expence. Just use applicatiion switcher (alt tab) to show the annotation application and go back to Keynote when done.


    Paintbrush is a free drawing and painting application and works OK:



    The other option is to buy one of the dedicated scrren annotation applications:
