Hello,

 

is there an effective and practical way to export vectorial files from AD to Keynote ?

 

I would like to be able to create or edit vectorial files in AD and then exporting them in a format that Keynote can open or import keeping the vectors editable.

 

thanks

I tried also with the a last beta of AD and it does not work.

 

Also with Illustrator CS6 it does not work, but copying from AD to Illustrator it does carry the vector data,  so I'm guessing that the problem is Keynote.

 

I have the latest update ( just did it five minute ago ) the 6.2.2 (1878) that is the latest you can have not having Yosemite.

 

Kathrin, do you have the 6.5 of keynote under Yosemite ?

 

thanks

On Yosemite, using Keynote 6.5 and Affinity Designer v1.1.2 i´m able to paste data as vector but i can't seem to make it editable going to Format -> Shapes and Lines -> Make editable on Keynote. Am i missing something here?

 

On Mavericks, using Keynote 6.2.2 and Affinity v1.1.2 i'm NOT able to post data as vector (zoom to 400% on Keynote shows blurred edges) neither make it editable obviously!

Looks like in Keynote there's a difference between a (vector) image and a shape. Shapes, the ones you create in Keynote, can be made editable, images can't. Not sure if it's a big issue. For now you have to make your edits in AD and as long as you can export them to Keynote without them loosing fidelity it's OK (to me at least).

By the way, i've noticed that moving Keynote shapes to AD also has limited use. I haven't been able to do anything sensible with them.
