Powerpoint to keynote Sun Jul 31, 2011 7:29 pm • by mpa15
Most of my professors distribute powerpoint slides prior to lecture. However, I prefer to use keynote so I created the following Hazel action to convert from ppt to key format:

if the extension is "ppt" then run this applescript:

tell application "Finder"
set theDestinationFolder to container of theFile as Unicode text
end tell

tell application "Keynote"
open theFile
set theSlideshow to slideshow 1
set theDestinationPath to theDestinationFolder & (name of theSlideshow)
save theSlideshow in theDestinationPath
close theSlideshow
end tell
