I am using the following to customise my footline, but it does not seem to change the height of the footline. What am I missing

{\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\paperwidth,ht=2.25ex,dp=1.5cm, leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fill]{author in head/foot}%
   {\large \url{www.yahoo.com}}

While code snippets are helpful, it is best to add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. To do so, edit your post and add the relevant content. – Werner Dec 23 '11 at 16:03

You can use the \fontsize{size}{skip} command, where size is your desired fontsize, and skip is the distance between lines (multiplied by \baselineskip)


The height of footline is computed to fit the font. Is this what you want?
