I have a client who wants to place a powerpoint slideshow on their homepage. I am using Keynote '09 to do this work.

 

I have a few problems that need to be fixed, in order to complete these tasks. The area where they want to place the slideshow is 344 pixels wide. The slide size is 720 x 540. Obviously, I need to address this size problem. My first inclination is to open a new page containing the slideshow.

 

When I exported the work as HTML, there are no controls on the new page. No forward, back, start, nor pause buttons. Can these be added? The slideshow itself is painfully slow. Can I change the playback speed?

 

Are there any other issues I need to consider?

 

Thanks,

Nicky

    This is how I export to html and it works as you want.

     

    Choose Share > Export and click HTML

     

    To have the  Home, Previous, and Next buttons added, select Include navigation controls.

     

    Click Next, type a filename, specify a location for the file, and then click Export

    To change the slide size:

     

    Inspector > document > slide size:   use  custom slide size in the drop down menu

    WHen I go to Share>Export>HTML, I do not see additional options for output. (I am using Keynote '09.)

    This is share > export in Keynote 09:

    from the Keynote 09 manual page 221:

     

    Creating an HTML Document

    You can turn your slideshow into an HTML document that can be viewed with Safari or

    another web browser. Viewers click hyperlinks to advance the presentation.

     

    To export slides to an HTML document:

    1 Choose Share > Export and click HTML.

    2 Specify whether to export all slides or only a range of slides.

    3 To create a separate image for each build stage, select “Create an image for each stage

    of builds.”

    4 To have a Home, Previous, and Next link added to each slide (as appropriate), select

    “Include navigation controls.”

    5 Choose an option from the Format pop-up menu to specify the image quality you want.

    The better the quality is, the larger the file size is.

    6 If you choose JPEG format, use the Quality controls to increase or decrease the

    compression factor used for the export.

    7 Click Next, type a filename, specify a location for the file, and then click Export.

    Thanks Gary, trying it now.

     

    I think I need to contact Apple, because I do not see most of options that appear in the dialog you sent me. In the one I see, the "Create an HTML document..." appears. After that, the only other option is "Movie Quality."

    Hi Nicky,

    Did you find cause of limitted configuration for export to HTML? I've the same situation and don't know how to switch off navigation buttons in exported presentation.

  • Nicky McCatty Level 1 Level 1 (40 points)

    Sorry Gsawczuk,

    I'm here with the same problem - no otion for disabling the nativation controls.

    Any ideas?

  • TutorDaddy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have same problem, no options showing except quality.

     

    Also have problem with audio file playing on each slide.  The audio plays OK on slide 1, but only plays for a second or two on remaining slides.

     

    Also get very different results depending on whether I view the html presentation using Safari, Chrome, or Firefox.

     

    Very frustrating.....

    Did anyone ever figure this out?   When I go to keynote and choose share, html I don't get the options that they showed above this is all I have:

     

    I need to make a flip book and put it on a website.

    I need to make a flip book and put it on a website.

     

    The intention of the HTML export function was to make an online stills slide show, with a choice of either autoplay or click the mouse to go to next slide, no other functions available.

     

    If you need anything further you will need an HTML authoring application.

    In the current Keynote, you can create links, which serve for navigation. Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 7.52.34 PM.png

    The current version of Keynote is a completely different application with different features. You will also then need to export to html to create the html structre folder, which is what this discussion was about.
