I created a Keynote '09 file for a friend. He has an older iBook with Keynote '06. I'm not able to get the Keynote '09 file to his iBook with the older Keynote '06. Any ideas?

    1. You could export to QT, PDF, or PPT, so your friend could at least have an idea of your presentation.

    2. You could share it via "iWork.com" (<http://www.apple.com/iwork/iwork-dot-com/>)

    3. Your friend could DL a trial version of iWork (<http://www.apple.com/iwork/download-trial/?cmp>), and see the real thing for 30 days.

    4. They (you) might even ( +horribile dictu+ ) buy KN (for them), pretty much of a bargain at $19.99.

    For the sake of completeness: the conversion you desire, from '09 to '06, is not, strictly speaking, possible. Older versions may play "newer" files, but not necessarily, and not necessarily well.

    +Edit: I may have misinterpreted your problem. What, exactly, is the problem - hardware, software, transfer?+

    Thanks for the info. My friend has a really old iBook and can't get the Ap store. I ended up buying the 08 version of iWork on Amazon for $20.

    Thanks for all your help.
