Hi,

How can one get the excellent "Mouse Pointing" script from Powerpoint to work in the Keynote menu, since Keynote 3 allows Mousepose to work?

I have never scripted before, but I tried copying the Mouse Pointing script and pasting it in the "Keynote" scripts category (using Applescript), but it shows up as a Basic Script in System Preferences and does not appear on my phone at all. I guess this is not the right way to go. Can someone plese drop a hint?

Thanks,

Abhijit

Could you please first confirm that Mouseposť appears "above" Keynote?

Jonas,

Sorry to be so dumb, but I am not sure where I am supposed to be looking to confirm that Mouseposť appears "above" Keynote?

I have a Nokia 6682 and when I am in a Powerpoint presentation, I can access the Mouse Pointing script using the left selection key. I would like to have something similar with Keynote.

Press the hotkey associated with Mouseposť. I'm not sure the marker will appear above the Keynote window.

Oh yes, the marker does appear but only in Keynote 3.
You need to go to Keynote Prefs->Slideshow and tick the box "Allow Expose,Dashboard and others to use screen" and Mousepose works fine with my mouse or trackpad. But it would be lot more useful to operate it using my phone during presentations - eliminates the need to carry a pointer.

Thanks for the quick replies.
