    Hello Muggers,

    how can i configure my remote to use on powerpoint presentation, this should be possible reight?,please dont tell me it can only be done in iworks...or do tell me if it does.

    ive been playing around it for days and cannot find ways to do it, it seems that the remote only works in front row, itunes, volume..

    Don't think it works with Office 2004. I thought there was freeware that you can use for this. Haven't looked yet.

    Get Salling Clicker. I use my mobile phone as a remote for Powerpoint presentations. Not free though.

    @cnight,
    thnks for the info, iredlite is good enough though, it can even program other things for use of the remote.

    @dimz224,
    I was using the trial version of iwork, just to try out if my ppt would work, somehow my presentation came out fine but the screen size is 1/4 of the original, do you know how to make it fit to screen??, the remote works fine but the screen size is a new problem, did you encounter this b4?

    You just open the PPT with Keynote, run the show, and you use the remote to either advance or go back in your slides. Its not an option, it is native.

    Also, if you are hooking up to a projector, you can set certain things to happen with Keynote, such as to have it always put the presentation onto the external display (the projector in this instance) and then have presentation helpers on the laptop display, such as a timer, pointer for when to switch slides, that sort of thing.
