I have now clocked a significant amount of hours designing slides in Apple Keynote. I love the program, but there are still a few annoyances that cannot be solved by adjusting your slide template or configuring other settings. Hopefully Apple will fix this in a new release (it has been a while):
- Selecting what you click, not what you cover with your selection triangle
- Make it easier to fill shapes quickly rather than having to go back to the inspector. I am always struggling with color windows and inspector settings
- Enable custom toolbars, especially with options to center and align things. Yes, the smart drawing guides are useful, but not useful enough.
