Keynote PDF exports still show comments

Simon C. Leemann
I am using Keynote '09 (v5.3) on High Sierra (not interested in the watered down version, don't need iOS/iCloud compatibility). No matter what I chose in the export dialogue *(incl. unchecking "Slides With Notes"), the resulting PDFs always end up showing the comments (the little yellow stickies) as if they were a regular graphic on the slide. Is there any way to get Keynote to stop dong that?

Thanks,
Simon

Nothing?

Or is there any way to designate a graphic as "do not print/export'?

Best,
Simon

It's quite possible you are the only person on this list using Keynote '09.

Any troubleshooting is going to start with "Have you tried it in the current version of Keynote?"

Yeah, the current version sucks. As detailed in the OP.

I don't have an answer to the export problem, but you might be able to use a PDF editor to manually remove the comments. Not sure how much work that would be, and you'd have to redo it each time you regenerate the PDF, but it's one possible workaround.

The only other idea I have is to maybe run Keynote '09 on an older MacOS and see if the problem happens there. It's possible the PDF-generation routines built-into the OS have changed and old Keynote doesn't work with them properly any more, even though the program as a whole still runs.

I don't know if this will be relevant or not, but I had an issue with PDFPen that when I exported pdf documents with a note embedded in it to TIFF, there would be a yellow thought cloud in the exported TIFF, where the note was embedded. The workaround (until it was fixed) was to open the offending PDF with Preview, and then do a save as to another name. My export of that saved document would then be ok (no yellow though clouds). It's perhaps worth a shot to see if that is a workaround.

Comments are not Notes. "Slides with Notes" refers to Presenter Notes: View > Show Presenter Notes.

Comments (the yellow stickies) can be hidden: View > Hide Comments.
It appears to me that if Comments are hidden when you export, then they don't appear in the PDF.

I'm curious about something. What is "watered down" about the new iWork apps? While I generally preferred the old interface, it seems to me the current apps have become quite capable--in some areas exceeding the old. Early versions of the "new" apps lacked many features, but most have been added back. I don't use them enough to really know. What's still missing?

Merge documents for one thing.  At least Word still supports it

Many thanks for all the suggestions, Gentlemen.

Indeed, exporting after selecting View > Hide Comments solves the issue.

Best,
Simon
