    The media option doesn't open up on the side and takes forever to load. In addition, I cannot search for media files either. I have thousands of pictures, am I supposed to scroll forever to find the one I'm looking for. I don't have time to organize them in folders.

    Apart from stripping Keynote of its most useful tools, Apple did not add annotation, something I had been looking forward to.

     

    I am seriously considering going back to Windoze after 20 years of Apple (people even used to call me Apple unofficial salesperson). Sad!

    This is the major issue that I have with this upgrade as well! I'm totally dissapointed for many reasons but this the most.

    No! Even Microsoft have not bungled like this. I can't remember any edition of Office that took retrograde steps and removed features. The nearest thing would probably have been the Ribbon but there were solid reasons to introduce that as the number of features grew.

     

    My wife and I have just reverted to Powerpoint.

    What Apple seems to overlook is the fact that while there has been a massive and growing market for phones and tablets, it is now reaching saturation and consolidating in most developed markets. This means the noveslty 'wow' factor has gone and iOS/Android/et al customers are becoming more descriminating - i.e. demanding more for less. Margins will fall and customers will go as easily as they came.

    Mac customers, on the other hand, tend to be more loyal and will not defect so readily. There may be fewer of them but most properly-run businesses dream of having such a solid base of devoted long-term users. For Apple to disregard them so contemptuously because it is so infatuated with shiny, shiny new customers is not merely complacent, but naive and commercially reckless.

    This ***** SO BAD. Why the **** is this gone? I use hundreds of PDFs in my presentations - they used to scale beautifully when using Magic Move. COME ON APPLE - It's feeling more and more like PowerPoint - it used to be AWESOME.

    Time for Apple to get rid of the team responsible for this so called update - and maybe buy them a dictionary with the word progress highlighted.

    Send them to work for a company that regularly messes up its updates.

    Ok, maybe getting rid of them is a bit extreme but its clear they have missed the mark as far as the customer base is concerned.

    The thing is, I really love Keynote 5.3. I use it on a daily basis, hence take a very keen interest into what changes Apple brings to it. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. Until yesterday, I didn't even know where to go to file a feedback. I believe there might be more people out there in deep frustration, but don't know how/where to complain....

    Back-compatibility with previous versions is the first commandment of professional software. This versions of keynote has been written by arrogant amateur developers. Keynote is one of the main reasons I stick with Mac OS X. Once they will make it unusable (i.e. when for one reson or the other I will not be able to use keynote 5.3 any longer), I will kiss them goodbye ...

    I'm a professor at Northwestern University who uses Keynote in a very large (~200 person) undergrad class and in all of my scientific presentations.  After going through this thread, and trying out the new Keynote on another machine, it's astonishingly clear that the upgrade is not made with actual users in mind.  My existing lectures simply will not work (among other things, they rely on smart builds).  I agree with Lessig.

     

    I won't be "upgrading" to Maverick's or the new keynote anytime soon, and really strongly recommend against this.

    Might be the same programmers that are working on the HealthCare.gov site!!  That would explain a lot!
