A friend asked me this:

...I stopped using KeyNote for one simple reason – contrary to the Mac marketing blurb, the final presentations do NOT work fine on Windows PCs – they look distorted and have formatting quirks which cannot be corrected because the Windows/Powerpoint file it has supposedly been saved as is in fact a non-editable file, kind of like a pdf.

Is there a way to create Mac KeyNote presentation files so they look nice on Windows and can be edited?

It can be exported to the Powerpoint format (.ppt, not pptx). And so is editable by Microsoft PowerPoint.

File > Export

The "look" depends on the complexity of the presentation.

But the distorted look when exported in PDF is odd. Since when I used it, it looked exactly like the Keynote version.
