4 Ways To Present From Mac Keynote Over Zoom

Showing a Keynote presentation over Zoom can easily become a mess with the audience seeing your document window and other things on your screen. You can use Zoom's ability to share a window and Keynote's new ability to present in a window to simplify things. But the best way to present is to use Keynote Live and let Zoom handle the video and audio while Keynote Live shows the presentation.

    Good pointers. We enjoy your video. You didn’t mention another way. Export to HTML. Is were is a reason that wasn’t mentioned?

    Bruce: How would you use HTML? It would be the same as just presenting normally, but from your browser instead of Keynote.

    For me an even better way is simply to use an iPad or iPhone as a Keynote remote to control the Keynote in “play in window” mode. That way I see all my presenter notes on my iPad but the zoom participants see only the main zoom window shared from my Mac it it is almost the same way as when you are using a digital projector.

    Hi Gary: Great tutorial. I have an issue that I see others online are mentioning and I could use your help for a presentation this week. Keynote Live. When I am in it, I do have Allow Mission Control/Dashboard selected in Preferences, however, when I select the X key, my presentation goes black and I have no Presenter Notes or dashboard at all. I have quit Keynote, restarted the Mac, and even tried other Keynote presentations and they all have the same result. Please help!

    Eric: Not sure. Maybe a bug?

    I have an iPad Pro and a MacBook Air. Could I use both? Put Keynote on MacBook Air and Zoom participant interaction on iPad Pro. Would that let me see participant chat function and allow participants to ask verbal questions while I pause Keynote? I need to teach a class so I need live interaction. Using Keynote live, can I play a video that participants can see and hear?

    Tom: Typically you would do it all on your MacBook. Present from that and share the screen, and do everything else. If you wanted to use the iPad to present over Keynote Live that would be outside of Zoom, which would work but then you’d need to have participants looking both at Zoom and at Keynote Live in a browser (or Keynote).

    Will this work – from MacWorld:

    Use two computers. If you’re fortunate enough to have two computers you can use, log into the videoconference from both machines and present on one, while viewing the videoconference session on the other, including chat comments or other feedback.

    With two computers, you could present full-screen on one with your notes and use a second also logged into to monitor the videoconference.

    Tom: Of course. If you have two computers and want to add that layer of complexity to your presentation. Seems simpler to have one computer with two screens, or one computer and present from Keynote in a window, share that window, and use the rest of your screen for controls, chat, etc.
