Keynote for iPad: Export a Keynote presentation to PowerPoint or another file format

Export a Keynote presentation to PowerPoint or another file format

To save a copy of a Keynote presentation in another format, you export it in the new format. This is useful when you need to send the presentation to people who are using different software. Any changes made to the exported presentation don’t affect the original.

Note: If the original file has a password, it applies to copies exported in PDF and PowerPoint formats.

Save a copy of a Keynote presentation in another format

  1. Open the presentation, then tap the More button.

  2. Tap Export, then tap a format:

    • PDF: These files can be opened and sometimes edited with applications like Preview and Adobe Acrobat. Each slide appears on its own page of the PDF.

    • PowerPoint: These files can be opened and edited by Microsoft PowerPoint in .pptx format.

    • Movie: Slides are exported in .mov format and include any audio in the presentation. To choose a resolution, tap Resolution and choose an option. To export only part of the presentation, tap Slide Range and enter the beginning and ending slide numbers.

      The movie advances to the next slide or build according to the time intervals you enter (for transitions and builds set to start On Tap). If you have an animation that is set to advance following a previous build or transition, it’s not affected by the time interval you enter.

    • Animated GIF: The slides you select are exported as an animated GIF that you can send or post. For more information, see Create an animated GIF.

    • Images: Slides are exported as JPEG, PNG, or TIFF files. Tap Slide Range to choose the slides you want to export as images. Choose an image format (the higher quality the image, the larger the file size). To include each build animation as a single image, turn on Include Builds.

  3. Tap one of the options for sending, saving, or posting the presentation.

    If you’re sending the presentation as a movie or image, tap Export, then tap an option for sending.

  4. Choose a location, or provide the requested information (an email address if you’re sending an email, for example), then send or post the copy.
