I keep getting this bizarre message when I save my Keynote document.  I have the choice to revert or save anyway, as in the picture below.  It is such a strange and specific error message.  I can say that no other app is using Keynote or any of the associated files.  So what is this and how can i stop it happening?  When I "save it anyway", it does save, but it is worrying and Keynote has frozen up while doing so.
