That's the one! The absolute best note organizer ever written. The only thing it lacked was a spell checker. I used it to organize my novels, short stories, research and work notes. Several weeks ago I exported one of my important keynote collections and the individual files numbered in the low hundreds. It was VERY discouraging trying to slog through the mess. 

I never gave Zotero much thought, but I will look into it. If it will import a Keynote file, it will be a godsend.
