    some software maintenance:


    delete keynote from applications folder

    delete the file:      from:    users > home > library  > preferences


    shut down the mac

    restart and press shift key imediatly after the chime sound

    keep shift pressed until the apple logo appears

    let the mac run while on the gray screen, it is repairing the software and will take 10 mins or so

    when the desktop appears  go to applications > utilities > disc utility > first aid and repair permissions

    restart the Mac normally

    So I'm having this issue with Keynote 6 and OS 10.9. I followed these steps and still had the problem, I am repeating the process deleteing all iWorks prefs but are the prefs for the new version stored somewhere else since it's not called iWorks?
