Hmm... Just tried that. The only thing it changed was that in Keynote slideshow view, the only way to navigate the document was with the hyperlinks (no arrow keys). Nothing changed when I exported to PDF. Still no functioning hyperlinks in the PDF. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Another question, while we're on the subject: In Keynote, when following a link to another presentation, it brings up the linked presentation no problem but it kicks me out of slideshow view. Which isn't ideal during the middle of a presentation, ya know?
The file type is Keynote. However, disregard this part of the question at this point; I have decided to add these external slides to the end of the original doc and just link within the doc.
So now I just need hyperlinks to other slides within the same doc to work when I export to PDF. Any ideas?
Many thanks for the responses and suggestions!!
try some routine software maintenance
reset Keynote by deleting the preference file located here,
it will be replaced when Keynote is restarted:
system drive > users > Home directory > library > preferences > com.apple.iWork.plist
also run disc repair by:
shut down the Mac
start the Mac again
immediatly after the chime sound, press the shift key on keyboard
keep pressed untill the Mac symbol appears
let the Mac boot up untill the desktop appears, it will take much longer to start as it runs the repair routines
one the desktop appears, restart normally
may also help to list the basics:
creating the hyperlink
draw a shape or type some text to use as the link object
select the object
inspector > hyperlink > link to: slide > then select which slide from options
creating the PDF
file > export > PDF >
