With full disclosure that I'm a total newbie on Keynote (have been building sophisticated PPTs for YEARS), I want to be able to present from my iPad (connected to projector) and annotate with a stylus.  I've seen some notes here about secondary apps after exporting your keynote to a PDF and other machinations that seem a) ridiculous on their face because I'll lose the powerful animations within the presentation; and b) insane because if it's something I can do on a PC with a Windows Tablet PC, I should definitely be able to do on an Apple product. 


Any ideas how to actually make this happen?   If it's not possible, I hope the product people at Apple are paying attention to this.  Thanks to all who have any help to offer!  

iPad, iOS 6.1.2

    No I did not mean to say anything other than what was posted.


    There is nothing critical or insulting about anyone or anything in my post, rather it was a quick, short, factual reply. Why would  you think so when I  took the time and trouble to locate the correct forum for you?


    You would rather have no one reply to you than give you some simple help?


    From my point of view, a one word reply of thanks would have been a more appropriate response from you.

    If you have need of some help with Keynote for Mac, I will be happy to offer advice if I am able.
