Hello all,

I am currently working on a "powerpoint" presentation on Keynote '08. I have all the pictures, words, etc but I would like to add music to it.
I was able to put a song (from iTunes) on the first slide, it plays it but once the shows continues to the second slide, the song ends.

All I want is for the song to continue throughout the presentation til the end but I haven't been able to work this problem out. Any help, you guys provide me, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time
QUOTE Thanks

In powerpoint at least (I don't know about keynote I havn't yet had a chance to play with it) you cannot assign an over arching media piece to a presentation. you have to

A) Get very short looping clips and embed in each slide
B) Time your presentation, once you have the times down you could then use garage band to cut the track down and embed the clips into the relevant timed sections
c) Layer everything on to one slide - however this is extremely bad practise.

Sorry I cant be of more help.
