If you are using a .pptx file, and have a fairly current version of Keynote (version 11.2 in October 2021) installed on your Mac, simply right-click on the .pptx file on your Mac and choose Keynote from the âOpen WithâŠâ menu at the top of the flyout. It will open in Keynote and alert you to any compatibility issues. Then simply save the file from within Keynote and it will be a Keynote file. (A .key file - unless the extension is hidden, in which case it will just be the name of the file.) Of course, when sharing presentations in general, it is essential to make sure the fonts (typefaces) used in the presentation are installed on the machine you are sharing it with. If you are using any non-standard fonts - make sure you share them along with the presentation. Certain things donât translate back and forth. Keynote doesnât allow animations on slide masters, so those will be lost. (Not the animations on your slides - just on the mastersâŠ) Also, some of the transitions and and animations are different. Current versions of PowerPoint and Keynote both allow cool slide-to-slide object animations - called Morph transition on PPT and Magic Move on KEY. Of course youâll need to confirm that all the presentation features that you are expecting to see actually translated appropriately. You may have to re-visit a few, but there are similar options in both to create the same look and flow.
But once the “page” has been built out, and the website linked/displayed you will be saving yourself thousands in fees. Once you've built the site, use your new site to build the brochure. What is my advantage as a reader? I am a visual person and I find PDF's to be quite overwhelming. It takes a moment to find the right page because the pages are usually too wide, and the fonts are not large enough to read it all. But once I find the page I'm looking for, I can simply read it. Now I do have a few pages that I used to read as a summary document. But for the most part, I use it as a reading guide for my clients. What could I lose? The worst possible thing would be to have a non-existent site and have the clients think I am just an expert at.
