My keynote (and all my iWork apps) are inexplicably crashing on start up. I've reinstalled iWork 09 from the DVD, after deleting all support files (plist...; application support files; dock icons). But I'm running into the same problem even after the reinstall. Anyone have any insights? Below is the first 20 lines or so from the 'Problem Report' (if you want the entire report, I can post that in a follow-up message):

    Hi Dyee,
    Can you please supply more information about how you solved this problem?
    I downloaded Keynote from the MacApp Store the day it opened. Until last Friday, it worked fine.

    However, it now works intermittently, and generally hangs after about a minute's work, if it opens at all.

    I created a zip folder of my fonts as you suggested, but the system would not let me trash my normal fonts folder. I have also disabled almost all of the fonts in fontbook, apart from the ones that the system would not let me disable (22) in all.

    I have also uninstalled and reinstalled from the Mac App Store, but am still experiencing problems with Keynote.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
