Keynote not only gives you the ability to open Microsoft PowerPoint files but to save your presentations in Keynote that can be opened in PowerPoint. Of course Keynote and PowerPoint are two different programs. But let's have a look and see how this miniature version of our presentation looks. I'll run through it real quickly here. Press Play. We have that build-in, that object zoom, that perspective, object push, anagram with the text and another text anagram with a dissolve build on that last text object. I'll escape out of there.
Now to create a version of this file that can be opened in PowerPoint, let's go up to Share and pull down to Export and if we choose this option here called PowerPoint. Now you see there is really no choices we have to make. Just simply click Next to create a location. I'll put in this folder here, click on Export and it does the conversion. Then you see in this case we've got a Document Warnings window. Now remember when we opened up some files in Keynote that didn't have exact compatibility, we got this warning when we opened a file, Keynote will provide this when it exports in PowerPoint plus you know that certain elements of your Keynote presentation didn't translate over into PowerPoint.
So this window gives you a summary of some of those transitions and features of Keynote hat didn't translate over into PowerPoint directly. Now Keynote will do a translation of those features when it creates the PowerPoint file. Let's go have a look at that PowerPoint file now and see how it did. So here's our Keynote presentation translated into PowerPoint. I'll go down here and click on the Slide Show View and you can see it opened up our slide show and I'll then advance through it here, you see some differences but in reality it didn't do too terribly bad. Some of these transitions are pretty good representations of what we did in PowerPoint. So you can see that although it's not exact. It does offer a credible version of what you've done.
So remember if you want your presentation to maintain all the unique transitions and builds that Keynote provides watch the move on sharing with QuickTime but if you want to provide a version of your presentation that runs directly in PowerPoint, use this option.
