    Keynote 6 already delete then re-download but still very slow and suddenly close when click " Open recent"

    So frustrating because file not saved.

    8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 128 SSD

    best practice when using Keynote:


    • an appropriate amount of RAM is installed: min 8GB


    • there is a minimum of 9 GB free space on all drives


    • there are no antivirus or so called "system cleaning" applications installed on the Mac (these are of no use in Mac OS X, they are counterproductive and are a massive drain on system performance)


    • there are no unnecessary applications open during Keynote when in Play


    • there are no files stored on the desktop


    • there are no unnecessary items listed in:   System Preferences > Users and Groups > Login Items
