Hi all,


I am making a quiz type game on keynote for my class.  I have been trying to figure out how to random pick one name to assign a question to.  For example, 15 students will play the game.  For each question, a slide will appear where a random person will be chosen to answer the question.  Any ideas on how to do this?

    You will have to choose the person yourself, or for them to each take a turn to answer, Keynote can not do that for you. If you need random generation of names you need to use another application such as Adobe Flash Pro or Adobe Director.


    As to showing the question, place a text box on the slide and type it the text.


    Keynote is an entry level presentation application, so you need to keep things simple.
