    Totally agree.  If you depend so much on the software, why take a chance?  You should have fist done some research to make sure that there are no issues with the upgrade and in doing so wait to upgrade.

    You should read what I said, no professional should ever depend on .0 software, or software out the gate for less then 2 weeks for their livelihood (or a month for that matter), and without a backup plan - in this case, a working SL system. Anyone who is, well, sorry about that but the world works differently in reality, and things will always go wrong in a bubble-fantasy land where software is always working immediatly after an OS upgrade.

    When people report on problems and how serious they are and explore potential solutions scolding and name calling is not appropriate. It certainly does nothing to advance a solution to the problem.

    This is the most stupid remark I ever heard. We do not ask people not to upgrade but warn those who work with Keynote. But above this all we just ask Apple to come with a solution for people working with Keynote and believe me there are a lot of us specially when you are an academic or lecturer.

    Again if you are happy with Lion, it is good for you so why dont you post just a posetive remark to outwigh ours in stead of asking us to deny the problems we are having.

    I agree with you, if there are people who doesn´t have the problem, good for them.

    I have been an Apple user for several years and never had a situation like this, but since most of us rely on the use of Keynote for our work is disapointing to have an issue with an original Apple software.


    Still we may be a minority, but Apple cannot disregard our opinion and it probably is starting to be a bigger issue.


    Anyone has received feedback from Apple?


    So far, what we know that may be the cause of the problem is the autosave feature, and sometimes the presentation crashes during the play.

    I have used Keynote and not crashed my presentation but sometimes the keyboard freezes.

    They asked me to recieve my macbookpro's system profile in txt format and the file that i have problem with.

    But i have not problem with autosaving or else. I have problem in previewing MOV files that exported through keynote app.

    I am having issues as well. Slow to respond. I hope there is an answer soon as I have to do presentations with more than 200 slides in the next few weeks and will have to go back to powerpoint if they don't fix this!

    Is there any news?????????????

  • rickallen1231 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)



    This is ridiculous!  Keynote crashes on me about every 3-4 minutes on a 34MB file.


    Never trust Apple again until the OS update has been out a year.  How many pros have told me the same thing.  Apple is getting about as bad as MSoft.

    I have given up on keynote and gone back to powerpoint for mac. i simply cannot waste my time anymore. it's sad because i won't be able to use keynote for presentations for keynote for this year's conference, which i have always done.


    Guess i will have to be uncool this time and use powerpoint. Sad loss for apple. I will just have to stop using keynote. Can't revert my files back to keynote IF they come up with a fix.

    I had no problem creating a presentation with Keynote in Lion. However, during the session in which I used it I had all kinds of issues.  Playing the file as a slideshow was impossible. I couldn't navigate and got the beach ball constantly. I had to run it from the  "edit" pages. Needless to say, transitions, moves, etc. did not work.


    To make a bad situation worse I could not reopen the file. I need to reuse it for another session today but when I tried to reopen it it wouldn't open. ""The document doesn't have a valid file format." It's size reports as 0 bytes. Luckily I'd exported it as a .pdf which should get me through the session today but looks like it's back to PowerPoint for me until this mess gets straightened out.

    I had the same problem when switching from Leopard to Snow Leopard, and from Snow Leopard to Lion. Reinstalling and update iWork solved the problem.

    My Keynote problems stopped since I turned off Resume and Auto-Locking in General and Time Machine preferences and then restarted, now back to smooth sailing!

  • macbarros Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Dear Mulderscully,


    This because you do not work with this. I'm a doctor, after more than 500 presentations with Keynote, I had serious problems with the Lion only cured after coming back to the SL.


    It is not pleasant to have a proficional loss due to technical problems.


    I would wait for corrections!

  • connecteddale Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    When you say Resume is that the "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps" under General Preferences?




    I've just switched off Auto-Locking and that has made a big difference - almost normal functioning...

    Yup that's the one.
