Cakllout Tool & Keynote Legend Non-Cooperation Issues

Recommended Posts

After developing a sizable database of commonly used callout notes, I'm finding in version 2008 that anything from 12.5 is really buggy.

For example, when I open a 12.5 file in 2008, all of the notes from the Keynote Legend are in the wrong font. When I double click the Legend to bring up the database and notes manager, it shows no notes and worse still, when I cancel out of the dialog box, the notes then disappear completely.

This is a repeatable problem that seems to persist on two different machines (both Mac with Leopard) whenever I open a 12.5 file that has callouts and a Keynote Legend.


Thanks in advance...

(FWIW - I have not yet installed SP1 or SP2 for the new OS. COuld this be the culprit?)

Yes, there are known bugs in VW2008 at least as far as SP1. I am downloading SP2 and will test the callout tool then. I think some/most of the problems are fixed in SP2 though.

Just finished downloading and installing SP2.

Callout tool and Keynote Legend still somewhat buggy, but working correctly for the most part.

It appears that there's a new handle which allows you to drag and drop the space between the bullet/number in the keynote legend and the beginning text for each note. Was pretty squirrelly, but under control once I figured out what to do with it.

Anybody else experience some of this?
