Import Keynote

Print Friendly and PDF

Proclaim integrates with Keynote, so you can bring your completed Keynote presentations directly into Proclaim as an image slideshow service item. In order to import from Keynote, you must have Keynote installed on your Mac computer.

Note: If you’ve never built a presentation within Proclaim, it’s easy to get started. Building your sermon directly in Proclaim gives you access to powerful features. Learn more about the sermon options available with Proclaim.

There are two ways to import Keynote files:

  • Import as a Service Item: This option works best if you’ve already started building your Proclaim presentation. You can add the Keynote file as an image slideshow service item.
  • Import as a Presentation: This option works best if you haven’t started building your service presentation in Proclaim, as it adds your Keynote into a blank Proclaim presentation as an image slideshow service item.

However you import your Keynote, you can advance through the slides as static images. If you’ve built transitions in Keynote between points, Proclaim will each transition as a new image.
