3 Best Ways to Convert PowerPoint Presentations to Keynote
There are numerous reasons you would want to convert a PowerPoint presentation to the Keynote format . Perhaps you intend to send a PPTX or PPT file to a recipient with a Mac. Or maybe you received or downloaded a presentation as a PowerPoint file to your Mac.
Thankfully, converting a PowerPoint presentation from the PPTX or PPT format to the KEY format is quite easy. Perhaps even easier than you think. So without any further ado, let’s go through three easy ways to help you do that.
1. Use ZamZar
On Windows, the most convenient way to convert a PowerPoint presentation to the Keynote format is to use an online file conversion service. ZamZar was our pick for a couple of reasons; the service has been around for almost 15 years, and there were no other reputable file converters that could perform PPTX to KEY conversions.
Step 1: Open ZamZar in your preferred web browser. Then, click the Add Files button and upload the PPTX or PPT file that you want to convert. The file should not exceed 50MB in file size.
Note: ZamZar lets you convert up to two PPTX files within a 24 hour time period. If you want to convert more than that, you must subscribe to a paid plan.
Step 2: Set the output format to KEY, and then click Convert.
Step 3: Wait for a few seconds while ZamZar converts the file. Then, click Download to save the converted presentation file locally.
However, you must keep a couple of issues in mind while using a file conversion service such as ZamZar. Firstly, you must be aware of privacy implications. If the presentation contains sensitive information, it’s best to avoid this method since there are no guarantees of where your data might end up in.
Secondly, there are formatting issues to consider. Converted KEY files may not carry the same formatting (fonts, for example) as their original PPTX/PPT files. The problem is further compounded by the fact that PowerPoint (which you probably used to generate the presentation) doesn’t support KEY files, so there’s no way to check either.
The next method is not only private and secure, but it also allows you to convert as many files as you want.
2. Use iCloud Keynote
The online version of iCloud Keynote also features the ability to convert PPTX files to the KEY format. If you don’t have access to an iCloud account, you can create one for free here . You do not need to have an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac for that, although you only get one gigabyte of free storage instead of 5GB.
Step 1: After signing into iCloud.com , select Keynote from the iCloud Launchpad.
Step 2: Upload the PPTX or PPT file from your computer. You can also upload multiple files simultaneously.
Step 3: Double-click the uploaded PPTX or PPT file. iCloud Keynote will process the file and open it.
Step 4: Check the file for formatting issues and other problems (such as missing fonts) and rectify them.
Tip: If you are unfamiliar with the options and settings in Keynote, do check our Keynote Basics guide .
After making the necessary changes, click the Keynote Tools icon, and then click Download a Copy.
Step 5: Pick Keynote as the download format.
That should prompt iCloud Keynote to download a converted copy of the PowerPoint presentation to your computer. Repeat the procedure for any other presentations that you want to convert into the Keynote format.
3. Convert Using Keynote
If you use Keynote on your Mac , iPhone, or iPad, you can open any PPTX or PPT file quite easily since the application features native support for both formats. Converting them to the KEY format is then as simple as saving them.
Step 1: Double-click the PPTX or PPT file. Keynote will then process the file briefly and open it automatically.
Step 2: Keynote will notify you of any formatting issues in the presentation. Check the document and fix any errors.
Step 3: Open the File menu, and then click Save or Save As (press Option key to unhide) to save the file in the KEY format.
Warning: If you click Save, you will overwrite the original PPTX or PPT file.
Keynote—iPhone & iPad
Step 1: Open the Keynote app, navigate to the location of the PPTX or PPT file, and then tap to open it.
Step 2: Review the presentation for any formatting issues. Then, tap the option labeled Presentations to the upper-right corner of the Keynote app.
Step 3: You should then see a new KEY file within the same location as the original PPTX file.
Alternatively, sharing a PPTX file from another app to Keynote will automatically convert it to the KEY format. You can then find the converted file within Files > iCloud Drive > Keynote.
So, that’s how you should go about converting PowerPoint files to the Keynote format. Since formatting issues can easily play a factor in content-rich presentations , do make sure to review converted files afterward.

How to Convert a PowerPoint presentation to Keynote
A presentation is the perfect visual support for any type of exposition. From a business explanation to one for a history class, it is the perfect element to attract the attention of your audience.
At Slidesgo , we have a wide variety of templates designed for Google Slides and PowerPoint. However, it is likely that your operating system is macOS , Apple's operating system, and therefore, you use Keynote to edit presentations.
This is not an obstacle for you to use our templates, because today we are going to explain how to download a PowerPoint template and still be able to edit it in Keynote. Let's get started!
Steps to transform a PowerPoint to Keynote
If you want to use and edit a PowerPoint template in Keynote, the procedure is very simple. You will only need to do a few preliminary steps that will take you just a few minutes. Here's how to convert a PowerPoint template to Keynote successfully.
1. Open Keynote on your Mac computer. Select a new empty template to open the options menu.
2. When you have the new template open, in the top menu, select File > Open and choose the PowerPoint template you want to convert.
3. Now the conversion will begin. It is important to note that, with the exception of a few elements that we will see below, everything converts and adapts to Keynote very well.
4. One of the elements to readjust when we have converted to Keynote is the fonts. In fact, the warning that appears at the end of the conversion will tell you that there may be some fonts in the file that are displayed differently. Select Replace fonts and Keynote will show you those that have not been converted.
5. Fonts that have changed in the conversion will have a warning icon on the left. Correct them easily by clicking on the arrows, which will bring up the list of fonts you can select. Replace them with a font that is a replica of the original in PowerPoint, or with the font of your choice. When you are done, click on Replace Fonts.
6. Another item that may not have been converted correctly is charts and graphs. Being all from the Microsoft Office suite, PowerPoint creates the charts from Excel, making them more complex in formatting and more difficult to convert to Keynote automatically. Go to the slides containing charts and adapt them in Keynote as they were in the original template.
7. The last step would be a general review to check that everything has been converted correctly. Review all the slides and check that, after making the previous changes, everything is as in the original PowerPoint template.
8. Once you have made all the changes and the final review, save your template with the new Keynote format, by clicking on the top menu on Save and all set. Once this is done, you will have your template in Keynote format ready to present.
As you can see, converting from PowerPoint to Keynote is very simple and will take you very little time, so don't hesitate to download a Slidesgo template to use in your presentations. Whatever your computer's operating system, there are no limits to creativity.

How to Add Superscript and Subscript in Google Slides
Let’s take the most famous formula: E=mc^2, Einstein’s relativity equation. It wouldn’t be the same if it was E=mc2, right? Okay, yes, some people write it like that because it’s very famous and it won’t be misunderstood. But technically… It can! This is where the sophistication of superscript or subscript enters the room! Do you know how to write them in equations, copyright brands or even footnotes in your presentations? Let’s figure out how.

Microsoft developed the PPT format for PowerPoint, which is mostly used for creating and editing presentations. PPT files normally comprise slides of text, images and animations that can play as timed or manually controlled slideshows. Users can build presentations from scratch or use an online or company corporate template. PowerPoint is the most widely used format for presentations in both educational and work settings. It can also be used for creating reports, which users often save or print as a PDF. Since 2007, PPTX has been Microsoft’s standard file format for PowerPoint. However, even if you have a newer version of the program, you can still use it to open older PPT files, and also to save presentations into PPT format. PowerPoint is part of the Microsoft Office suite, but some other programs, like LibreOffice, Apple Keynote or Google Slides, can also open both PPT and PPTX files.

KEY is the name of the format for files created by Apple’s Keynote presentation app. Keynote is an alternative to presentation software like PowerPoint and Prezi, and includes functions like layout templates, animations and embedded videos. KEY presentations can be created from blank slides or from templates provided within the application. You can also play a KEY presentation on a screen while reading the notes on your device. Along with Numbers and Pages, Keynote is installed as standard on iOS, iPadOS and macOS as part of the iWork suite. Apple users often use the in-built app because it’s available across their devices without extra downloads or subscriptions. However, the drawback with KEY files is that you need an Apple device to view and edit them. The files can't be opened by other presentation programs like PowerPoint or Google Slides, so to view the files on a Windows or Android device you would first need to convert the KEY files to another format like PDF or PPTX. You can do this either by exporting the presentation from Keynote to a different format, or by using a conversion tool.

How to Convert PowerPoint to Keynote on Mac
Jumping back and forth between PowerPoint and Keynote presentations can be quite easy if you know how to turn PPT to Keynote files. And we will help with a guide anyone can understand. This conversion is easier than you think.
Step 1 . Launch Keynote on your Mac, and then click "File" > "Open" from the drop-down menu. Select "On My Mac", and then browse to find the PPTX or PPT file. The good news is Apple lets you open these files in Keynote. Once you open it, you will see Keynote will process the file. It might take a while, but in the end, you will see the presentation in Keynote.
Step 2 . Once you open the presentation, there will be a couple of warnings. This is because Keynote and PowerPoint look and work differently. Keynote will note all of the issues, and then you have to make changes to handle the warnings.
Step 3 . One of the common issues is fonts, and you will have to click the "replace fonts" button on the pop-up window. For replacing charts, sadly, there is no quick option. PowerPoint has advanced charting features, meaning you will have to re-create new charts. It is the only content that doesn't convert smoothly.
Step 4 . Run the presentation, and review if there is any difference between the one in PowerPoint and your new one in Keynote. If there are changes, make the necessary adjustments. If not, save the presentation as a Keynote file. There you go, you have successfully learnt how to convert PowerPoint to Keynote.

- 2. Go to the attachment, and open the file by clicking "Open In". Select Keynote as the app to open the PPTX/PPT file.
- 3. The presentation will not look the same, since Keynote and PowerPoint work differently. You will have to make the necessary changes, the same as with opening PPT on your Mac in Keynote.
- 4. Review the presentation, and see if there are any differences with the original presentation. If there are no differences, save the presentation.
Tips for Converting PowerPoint to Keynote

Simply tap iCloud integration in your Keynote application, and you will be able to share files with all iCloud users. That includes PC users who use PowerPoint. You can set permission in the iCloud so users can access, or edit Keynote files.
The Best PDF Tool You Must Have on Mac
PDF is a huge part of using Apple products. Yes, PowerPoint and Keynote have a number of features that make the presentation neat, smooth, and professional looking.

How to Convert Keynote to PowerPoint
Apple Keynote is one of the most popular apps professionals use to create presentation slideshows. Although, there may come a time when you’ll want to edit a Keynote slideshow in PowerPoint because not everyone has access to the same app.
For example, you may run into problems when you’re collaborating on a team presentation or want to share your slideshow with someone else who’s using a Windows device because the Keynote app is exclusive to Apple devices. Thankfully, the Keynote app has a built-in solution to this problem. In such cases, you can convert your Keynote file to PowerPoint format quite easily.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to export a Keynote presentation to PowerPoint format, step by step.
Find the Perfect Keynote Template
Finding the perfect Keynote template can be tricky. At Envato Elements, you can explore thousands of high-quality Keynote templates, and many other design assets. It starts at $16 per month, and gives you unlimited access to a growing library of over 2,000,000 presentation templates, fonts, photos, graphics, and more.

What to Do Before Exporting
Before you start the converting process, make sure to follow these steps.
Include Images Separately
Keynote lets you export presentations to various types of file formats, including PowerPoint. However, there’s no guarantee for your export to go 100% perfectly. Sometimes your images, graphics, and shapes can get distorted in the exported file.
If you’re exporting the file to share it with someone else, it’s best to include your high-resolution images separately with your PowerPoint presentation. This will help avoid blurry and pixelated images when presenting your slideshow in larger screens.
Attach the Custom Fonts
Using custom fonts in Keynote presentations is fairly common. Keep in mind that other people may not have the same custom fonts you use on your computer.
If you’re using any custom fonts in your Keynote presentation, make sure to attach the font files separately with your exported PowerPoint file when sharing it with your team or employees.
Add Animations Later
Apple Keynote and PowerPoint have fairly similar animations. However, most of the animations you add in Keynote won’t convert well to PowerPoint when you export the slideshow.
It’s best to remove all animations before you export the Keynote file to PowerPoint and then add all the animations later using the PowerPoint app.
How to Convert Key to PPTX
Converting a Keynote presentation to PowerPoint is so easy that it only takes a couple of clicks. Here’s how it’s done.
First, open your presentation in Keynote. Now go to the File menu and select Export To and then PowerPoint .
This will open the Keynote Export window . From here you’ll be able to convert a Keynote file to many different formats, including PDF, HTML, and even to video format.
In the export to PowerPoint tab, you can password protect your presentation by checking “Require password to open” checkbox. Leave it blank if you don’t want to add a password.
Then tick the checkbox for Advanced Options . This allows you to select the file format you want to save. If you’re using an older version of PowerPoint, like PowerPoint 2007, select PPT as the file format. If you’re using a newer version, choose PPTX file format.
Keep in mind that some parts of your presentation might not function properly when converting to the older PPT format.
Once you’re ready to export, click Next . Give your PowerPoint file a name and click on the Export button. That’s it! Now you should be able to open your presentation in PowerPoint.
In case you don’t have access to the Keynote app and still have to open and customize the presentation in PowerPoint, you can convert the file using a third-party tool.
While we don’t recommend using these tools, you can use them as a last resort to converting a Key file to PPTX without using an Apple device. The best tools we came across are CloudConvert and AConvert .
Again we can’t guarantee how well these tools work and please use them at your own risk.
Make Sure the Export Is Successful
In rare occasions, exporting Keynote to PowerPoint may not go as smoothly as intended, especially when exporting animated Keynote presentations and slideshows with lots of graphical elements.
To make sure the file is exported properly, open the new presentation in PowerPoint and run the slideshow to see if it works without any flaws.
Also, check to see if the fonts and the colors are shown correctly in PowerPoint as well.
Hopefully, this guide will help you share your Keynote presentation with a wider audience. In the future, a great way to avoid running into this problem is to use pre-made presentation templates that come in both Keynote and PowerPoint file formats.

Screen sharing a PowerPoint presentation
There are three methods you can use to screen share a PowerPoint presentation in a Zoom meeting. If you have dual monitors, you can share a slide show while viewing the presenter's notes on another monitor. If you have a single monitor, you can also start the slide show in a window so you have access to other meeting features while sharing your presentation.
If you have other participants presenting portions of the PowerPoint, you can give them slide control in Zoom, so that they can control the slideshow on their end, without needing to ask you to move the slides forward. Additionally, PowerPoint slides can be shared as a Virtual Background for a more immersive sharing experience.
This article covers:
Dual monitors with slide show and presenter's views
Single-monitor setup with slide show view in a window, single-monitor setup with slide show in full screen.
Follow these steps if you are using multiple monitors and want to present your PowerPoint in one monitor, while viewing the presenter's notes in another monitor.
