Exporting Presentations in PDF Format

If you need to export your presentation in a format that can be easily transported between computers and that can be easily printed, the correct choice is to export to PDF (Portable Document Format, also known as Adobe Acrobat format). PDF files can be viewed and printed with the free Adobe Reader, which is available for a very wide range of computer platforms, including Macintosh (Mac OS X and Classic Mac OS); Windows (3.1 through XP); Linux and other versions of UNIX; and even some handheld computers, such as Palm and Pocket PC. On Mac OS X, PDF files can be read by either Adobe Reader or by the Preview application.

Keynote slides that are exported to PDF generally look pretty good, but you should be aware of some limitations. For example, depending on which version of Mac OS X you are using, files exported to PDF may lose transparency and shadows on text and graphic objects (Figure 11.33). Upgrading to Mac OS X 10.4 or later is a big help. Graphics in Keynote often turn out to look more jagged (less smooth) when exported to PDF.
