I have a Powerpoint...

I have a Powerpoint presentation in my Dropbox which is viewable on my iPad. I want Keynote to recognize this file and be able to show it in Keynote.

Technician's Assistant: What OS X (Operating System, e.g. Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, etc.) or iOS are you running?

Ios

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I was asked when I connected the ipad to my computer and I said yes, but I don't think they uploaded.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

None.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac expert to know before I connect you?

I just need the ipad to recognize the file.

Depending on the Powerpoint version the file is it may need conversion. If you tap on the file in Dropbox to Download it should ask what App you want to open it with... choose Keynote.

Keynote was not on the dropdown menu, even after downloading an update. I wish a better answer or a refund.

I suggest you put it in your Keynote folder in iCloud Drive then try to open it. If you send it to me here I can see what is going on. Click on the paper clip to attach.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
