You don't use LinkBack by double-clicking. It's invoked by  
highlighting the equation, then going to the Edit menu of Keynote and  
looking for the menu item "Refresh (or Edit...) in LaTeXiT".

There is another neat feature of LaTeXiT that made the lack of  
Linkback in Keynote bearable: If you want to modify a PDF formula  
created in LaTeXiT, you _copy_ it from Keynote, then _paste_ it into  
LaTeXiT. That makes the original LaTeX source appear automatigically.  
That feature in fact let's you switch back and forth without having  
to use the mouse at all, except to highlight the formula.
