This Logitech remote has a volume adjustment button on the side. But if you change the volume the computer gives a loud ‘quack’ out the speakers, which in not good if you are in the middle of a presentation or a movie. Here is how to disable the volume change sound effect.

keynote

There have been many times that I have been given a keynote file from someone, and I want to get a movie or picture out of it and save it as a separate file.  You used to be able to right click and select “view package contents” but  that doesn’t work anymore. Here’s how to do it now.

Apple Keynote

This is a feature that is sorely missing in Apple keynote. The ability to create a loop within Keynote. For example you may want have a loop of 4-5 slides at the start of a presentation while people are waiting, and then start the presentation without having to exit and open a new presentation.  Or you may want to have a loop in the middle of a presentation, for example some photos that rotate while someone is singing, and then continue on with the presentation when you are ready.  There is no way of doing this within Keynote itself but here is a workaround that will get you out of trouble.

There are lots of different ways you can set up a computer and projector at your church but after 15 years playing around with various options here is the system we have ended up with at our church.  We want the words up the front for people to sing along to and we want the singers to be able to read from a screen in front of them as well.
I guess all the requirements of our system can be described as follows:

remote

I’ve just found a new wireless remote to use with presentations in Keynote or Powerpoint. Recently I have purchased a Kensington wireless remote and I’m very happy with it. It appeared in our local Office works store recently for just $29, and it’s on par with the old Logitec remote.  Continue reading ⟩

I often do weddings and funerals, and as part of the wedding or funeral people like a Keynote slideshow with 10-20 photos set to some background music.  The problem is there may be other slides that need to come before or after it without background music. The easiest way to achieve this is to make a ‘movie’ of the slides (with a soundtrack) and then re-import this movie into a Keynote as a single slide. Here’s how to export a Keynote slideshow with a soundtrack.

In this article I reviewed the Logitech wireless presenter. It is in my opinion the best remote control to use with Keynote. That particular Logitech remote has been replaced by the new Logitech R400 which doesn’t feel as robust, the main buttons are smaller, and it still has the 2 smaller buttons, one which completely exits out of your keynote presentation!  The last thing you want is to press the wrong button and be taken out of your keynote back to the desktop.

The smaller two buttons  can be easily disabled with a knife. This article describes how to disable the extra 2 buttons.  It really is a simple procedure and doesn’t even require any soldering!
