The Unpronounceable Nickname ,

Exceptional platform that needs to update features

Kaynote's terrific. However, with Figma, Canva, and the Adobe Suite out there, it seems like it's time to add more features and design tools. For instance, Figma has the ability to add features with plug-ins, e.g., free illustrations. And others have easier-to-accomplish presentation animations - even partially automated.

Also, with the rise of AI, it would be great to have Keynote assist more in making presentations. I know this is a big one, but that's something Canva's already doing. All of the Apple apps could use a similar refresh that helps make them easier and faster to use. I know Apple's likely working on it -- I guess I'm just saying I'm looking forward to (i.e., sincerely hoping for!...) a bigger evolution in Keynote and other Apple apps soon.

I don't want to spend the time just complaining about what's not there. Most importantly, I've done very good work with Keynote. That's the bottom line. But that's exactly why I'd like to use it for more tasks.

Useful in my research ,

Essential in presenting scientific research with one minor defect

I have recently started using Keynote for my presentations as a substitute for Latex and Powerpoint. While the output in Keynote looks much better compared to the previously mentioned softwares, I have been suffering from a defect which might be happening to other users too. Its regarding dragging objects around on a slide. Lets say I write an equation using Latexit or say copy and paste an image from my computer, it sometimes get “stuck” and won’t move around when selected and dragged around. It will eventually but I have no clue as to the origin of the problem. This is time consuming and annoying while editing presentations at the last minute or in general. I haven’t found a good solution to this problem online. The typical solution suggested is to use coordinates which works but sometimes and more often you would like to place the object according to your liking which is difficult to judge from the coordinates. Compared to Keynote, it is seamless in Powerpoint to drag and drog items. Barring this issue, Keynote is a wonderful software, easy to start with and highly useful in presenting your research anywhere.

ok but

Keynote has certain frustrating limitations. When animating on a video, you are not able to start playback of the video until the animation is complete. ANY animations lock you out of other controls. Say you are following a presenter and they speak faster causing you to have to go forward, Keynote does not allow you to skip the animation easily, and if you do skip, it isn't in a way that hides the change, you will get an ugly jump to the end of the animation insteads of just moving forward to the next slide. The group numbering and ordering is a little confusing and also limited especially standing out when having multople items in the build order with delay timings, as the delays don't necessarily connect to the start action but the prior object in the build order. It is also frustrating to not be able to stack build items to create even more detailed animations. Keynote is great for basic presentations and handles video playback well. As presentations get more advanced, I find that a lot of the work has to be done outside of Keynote and brought in, or ideas just have to be simpified to work within Keynote's parameters.
