    Lightbulb Solution to missing slides when opening .ppt in Keynote
    I've had problems opening a few of the powerpoints recently. Basically, I can open the file, but some of the slides are missing. when I use QuickLook, I can see that the file is completely intact, just when I open it in Keynote, some of the slides are lost. Here's one solution:

    Download OpenOffice from Use that to open any problem files (for me, this problem doesn't happen with every file). If you still want to use Keynote, which I do, you just open the file with OpenOffice, then save the file as a .ppt file. Keynote will be able to open THAT file with no hitches.

    So basically, you're using OpenOffice to [slightly] reformat the file and make it Keynote-friendly.

    I haven't encountered this problem you speak of.

    Some files in a ppt slideshow will come into Keynote as hidden/"collapsed" (telltale clue: disclosure triangle next to the first of a series of slides), but they're all there IME.
