When I was training customers as a product consultant I made heavy use of application switching during a slide show with PowerPoint. I would Alt-Tab to IE to live demo some feature of the (Web) application.


PowerPoint has disabled Command-Tab, requiring the show to be stopped and restarted around the app switch. It's disruptive to the communications flow.


There is just ONE drawing primitive I wish for in Keynote: an arbitrary polygon. With that I can get pretty far without the other fancy primitives PPT has. Importing from Illustrator 8 (I can't afford to upgrade) produces ugly graphics.
