I've been making so many graphics in Keynote lately for use in videos and blog posts, but I really wish there was a quick keyboard shortcut to export the current slide as a PNG. Right now it takes about 9 clicks to export a slide.

@Miraz I just tried but I can't figure out how to get KM to read a specific text field in the export screen and change the value. I tried the "record" feature, and then it broke my computer and I had to restart the OS and uninstall it.

@Miraz I want to believe in it!

I am also a little bitter that it took over the command-tab behavior without any warning and with no clear way to revert it 😠

@aaronpk If you're a Mac user this is where Keyboard Maestro really earns its keep. Set up the steps then assign a trigger — could be a keystroke, or click a button, for example. I have all kinds of things set up in KM that work like that.

@aaronpk Oh wow. Sorry to hear it broke things!

@aaronpk Uh oh. I had a quick look at that export and could see the stumbling block with choosing PNG rather than JPG. My expertise ran out on that one but if you wanted to persevere there's a Forum where someone would know how to do it.

@aaronpk it's probably doable with AppleScript, but I haven't used AppleScript in probably 20 years to know for sure

@carpetbomberz @aaronpk Love it! "Now set the number of problems of you to 2" maybe 😂
