Are you using Keynote 3 yet? Does the LinkBack plugin still work with  
this new version of Keynote?

I think the problem you note is more generally that Keynote doesn't  
have in-line graphics; graphics are always ties to the page. Pages  
does have this distinction and I assume they both share lots of code  
so it's on my wish list.

I traded e-mails with the author of the Keynote LinkBack plugin and  
he said it turned out to be much more difficult to write a plugin for  
Pages although he didn't say why.

Good Luck,
