Okay, I discovered in another thread that there's some incompatibility between iWork 09 and a font that was in my username > library > fonts folder. I may have inadvertantly dropped in Courier.dfont into that folder, causing all sorts of havoc.
The advice I read in the other thread was to simply compress the username > library > fonts folder, so it becomes 'fonts.zip'. And then trash the original fonts folder. Then you can see if the iWork apps open. If so, then you know there was some font incompatibility. You can then load in each font a few at a time to try to pinpoint which font is causing the problem.
Actually, it turns out it wasn't Courier.dfont, but rather another font that was activated through my font management program, Suitcase. Same principal applies though: turn off all the fonts, and turn each one on to see which is causing the problem. The crash happens immediately (at least in my case).
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.
