Free the inspector from its popover shackles

Lifelong fan of Keynote here, all the way back to 1.0. It’s clearly still the ultimate piece of software of its kind, but the iPad UI needs to grow up. Limiting the inspector to popovers on everything except the 12.9” iPad Pro is, at this point in time, lazy. The area a slide would be afforded on an 11” iPad Pro if the persistent inspector panel were to its right is more than sufficient already. Compound this with the navigator’s ability to hide dynamically as well as the fact that zooming is so much easier on iPadOS than Mac, and you realize that even smaller iPads might be ok with this approach. Additionally, more advanced and adaptive ways of surfacing inspector-like UIs have evolved in both third and first party apps. A lot of screen real estate would be available to a horizontal version of the inspector, given that slides gravitate heavily toward 16:9 dimensions, while iPads display them on a 4:3 screen and move that ratio even further away from 16:9 due to the space needed for the navigator.

Math lectures

This is a fantastic app! I now use it for all of my math lectures. Some requested features: Please animate Bézier curves with magic move in the same way that lines and boxes are animated. Please allow the ability to save custom shapes. I have a set of shapes with specific style settings for borders, shadows, etc that I use repeatedly. I know there is a My Shapes area but it does not save style settings for the objects. When in presentation mode I would like to hide the annotation color palette over the hdmi signal so I can see it but my audience cannot. I tend to use every square inch of the screen and this will cover it up. I love that there is now the ability to customize the menu bar! Thanks for that! I often need to go into settings to toggle the snapping “center”, “edge” or “spacing” alignments. It would be amazing if I could have a toggle for each of these in the menu bar.

Also it would be great if I could add a live app view or web view in my slides.

Great! A Few Suggestions, Though

When I first got this iPad, I thought Keynote was just one of those useless apps that just happens to appear on your device once you get it. Then one day I decided to try it out; and believe me, I was wrong. It’s awesome!!! I do like everything on it. But there was one day I did do a presentation on Keynote, and there is one thing that I needed to do for it that you can do on Keynote. That was to remove background on videos. You can remove background perfectly fine on photos. Why not on videos? It’s just like a photo, but it captures movement and sound. so my one and only request of this amazing and functional app is that it can remove background on videos. and this word REALLYE the best app ever if it was easier to use your finger and/or Apple Pencil and draw on the presentation. I later found out that there is a way to do that, but I would appreciate it if I could access the drawing toolbox a bit easier. Thank you!!
