iWork \'05: Pages and Keynote
this app rocks! when will it land on our shores? i want!
i can predict the real "desktop publishing" comes to age.
iWant!! I'm sold on Keynote, and for less money than version 1 ($99), you get both Keynote 2 and Pages!
the new presenter display feature of keynote 2 is so cool
hey for only $79 i'm definitely up for it!
Pages seems interesting. If that goes well, it won't be long before we get to see an excel replacement
Yes I too am interested, can't wait to check out Pages and how it compares with Word, seems to be like a combo of Word and Publisher actually. But also I wish they put an Excel replacement into the suit.
Some iWork screenshots.
Will definitely get a copy. Keynote is enough for the $79 price tag. But Pages seem really interesting as well. The templates look really nice.
Can't wait to get my hands on one!
great link mgd. thanks. now, i crave the more. gimme keynote 2 please!
yeah since Appleworks has a spreadsheet why not here ? Apple has something up their sleeves, next version probably ..:beer:
Has there been any announcements how much this will cost locally?
With the death of the Aqua port of O, this baby couldn't have come in a better time. I hate the half-assed X11 O
Maybe Pages can do spreadsheet, too
I hope Apple will include a spreadsheet in iWorks. I'm getting myself one pretty soon. Dumping M$ Office.
does anybody know why the two slide transitions at the bottom of the list: Burn and Flash can't play on the iBook. well at least that's what it says:
We wouldn't know yet. Too early to ask, actually (unless we have some privileged developers with seed copies here). It was officially released just about 8-1/2 hours ago and in Apple Retail Stores only. The Philippines should be getting stock within the next two weeks. Lucky you if you have it already.

just checked the apple website support page and found this answer to my own question:
"Keynote 2: Which transition and build effects can be played on my computer?
Some Keynote 2 transition effects and builds will play on any supported computer, some require slightly more powerful hardware, and some can only be played on computers with advanced video hardware.
These transition effects play on any supported computer that has video hardware that supports OpenGL on Mac OS X (except the ATI Rage 128 card):
Iris (also a build)
These transition effects play on any supported computer that has video hardware that supports ARB Fragment Programs.
Video hardware that support ARB Fragment Programs include:
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200
nVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL
ATI Mobility Radeon 9600
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
ATI Radeon 9600 XT
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
ATI Radeon 9800 XT

Quick Keynote Question
Like PowerPoint, you can choose Navigator view, where you see a thumbnail of all the slides on the left hand side, and the slide itself on the main window on the right side.
My question is, "Is there any way to resize the thumbnailed images in the Navigator pane so that you can see ALL the thumbnails (and in fact, none of the actual-sized slides in the main window) maybe in a 5x5 grid?"
I'm not too sure if there's a way though, I pretty much tried a lot of things. The most I could get was to resize the two tabs so that the thumbnails occupied more space onscreen then the main slide viewer, but even when I adjusted the navigator frame, the thumbnails didn't resize themselves accordingly. They just stuck to left side where they'd always been, at the same small size, too.
I also couldn't get the main window to disappear so the thumbnails could take up more space either.
I wanted to do this to get a bird's eye view of all the slides.
I also tried selecting ALL the thumbnails on the left (in the hopes they would all turn up on the main window, but they didn't).
There seem to be only 3 views, 1) Navigator (thumbnails), 2) Outline (all text, no graphics), and 3) Slide only (no navigator sidebar) and I couldn't figure out how to make all the thumbnails appear on one page, horizontally, like a square 5x5 grid.
Any ideas, anyone?

now that i have the powerbook with Nvidia GeForce video, i can play the Burn and Flash animations already. but the general feedback in the Apple Discussions Board is right, these two animations aren't that fantastic to be missed. the page flip, dissolve and droplet remain to be my top favorites.
Here's an inelegant method to view them:
"Print" > change "Layout" to "16 pages per sheet" > "Preview"
A-ha! Pure genius That works THANKS!
