Ratings and Reviews
Good, though presenter notes could be stronger
I love using Keynote and do so regularly. It’s great that I can now use special formatting in the presenter notes, such as bold, italics, different colors of text, etc. I do that because these are easy-to-see symbolic reminders of things I need to do during a presentation. What’s frustrating, however, is that, when using my iPad as the remote for my iPhone for a presentation, all of that special formatting disappears and the text is generic! All of my symbolic reminders are then useless. So, what’s the point of being able to use these features when creating the presenter notes if they’re not going to be visible when actually giving a presentation?
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.
Ok, but unusable for what I’m doing
I’m trying to make lectures for my class and the Apple Pencil works well with Keynote. As I present my presentation I add annotations so I can do our math problems. Unfortunately the ‘done’ button is near where my right hand will rest while making annotations. This clears the screen in the middle of the annotations, making me start over. Also, there is no option to keep the annotations once you are done with the presentations. I like making the slides in keynote better than PP, but I can keep the annotations in PP and not have to start over since there isn’t a done button in PP. the pencil doesnt work as well (switching colors brings down a drop down menu in PP where it appears at the bottom in Keynote) but starting over because I bumped the button is infuriating. I managed to waste a good amount of time and have nothing to show for it. If it’s possible to move the colors and done button, that would be great but I haven’t found anything about it so far.
