Hi. I searched a bit, but couldn't find this addressed already. I would like to be able to change the size of the font used in slide notes. I could do this in Keynote 08, but I can't in Keynote 09. When I select text in the notes area, all of the font selection tools get greyed out. This worked nicely in KN08. [I don't, however know how, in either KN08 or in KN09, to change the default font for the notes...] Has anyone else seen this behavior change between KN08 and KN09? Does anyone know how to change the default font and font size for slide notes.

    I had the same issue with not being able to edit default shapes or presenter notes. After having searched the forums, it was suggested to run disk utility and repair permissions. I did that, and I could once again edit the notes and shapes.

    Strange, I know, but it works.

    Hope that helps.

    Powerpoint allows for users to change the text size of the speaker's notes for all slides by selecting 100%, 150%, etc. directlly from the speaker's note window.

    I don't see KN allowing this.

    Therefore, I'll stay with Powerpoint. It just allows more flexibility with speaker's notes.

    So, PPT lets you use percentages...and Keynote lets you use actual point sizes...the only limitation I can see is that there's no way to set the size for the whole preso. No idea how they overlooked that one.
