Great article. To make it clearer for the readers, I offer some corrections/suggestions.


Cocoa applications typically use the Text Inspector for formatting text. To easily copyfit, there is a little-known slider widget that you can activate in the rightmost pane of the Text Inspector that lets you dynamically resize the text.


The .key file "format" is indeed actually a directory behind the scenes, but the casual user wouldn't know it. Transferring files from one Mac to another is as easy as dragging the .key file. Don't worry about losing associated files or anything.


Finally, the animations are called "builds" because you're talking about how and in what order the elements are built onto the slide. Not to be confused with "transitions", which direct how the slides switch from one to another. Your article lumps both of these instances into "transitions" which isn't precise.
