sadly, you cant link to other files from Keynote, Apple has this function deliberatly switched off
You can link to Keynote files but not other types of file.
some less than satisfactory work arounds include:
place each page of the PDF into separate Keynote slides
link from within a PDF to keynote
place your PDF on a local or web server and link to that
use another presentation application such as Powerpoint, Open Office, Libra.

Gary, I'm trying to save a Keynote presentation that was created from a Powerpoint presenation using PDF files.
It imported beautifully, problem is it won't play. Keeps giving me a "Keynote cannot play your slideshow because an error occured" message.
I thought it was a Powerpoint/Keynote incompatibility thing, so I recreated the presentation - 1 pdf per slide just like you have here (I did this before finding your post) and it still wouldn't play. I even tried JPG - nothing; just horrible looking images.
Is there something I'm missing?

Some maintenance perhaps might help
reset Keynote by deleting the . plist file located here: system > users > home > library > preferences > com.apple.iWork.Keynote.plist
shut the Mac down, then restart, immediatly after the chime; hold down the shift key untill you see the Mac logo
The Mac will run a repair disc function, when finished restart as normal

I could not find the plist file, but I did from step 2 on & it worked like a charm!
Thank you very much =D
