Print Keynote Presenter Notes As Plain Text (Without Slides)

Found this AppleScript that takes all of your presenter notes, and pulls them into your clipboard, for easy text only paste into another file.

This is a huge life/timesaver when you want printed notes for a long presentation, since Keynote has no native way of doing this elegantly.

global presenterNotes
tell application "Keynote"
   activate
   open (choose file)
   tell front document
       set presenterNotes to presenter notes of every slide as text
           set the clipboard to presenterNotes
       do shell script "pbpaste > ~/keynote-notes.txt"
   end tell    
   quit application "Keynote"
end tell
