# Change itemize symbol in a Beamer note

I'd like to change the symbols used for itemize lists inside beamer notes. Setting for example \setbeamertemplate{itemize item}[triangle] affects only my itemize lists outside of notes (besides the styles for those outside are different than for those in notes).

How can I change the symbols used for itemize lists inside notes?

-

You could include the following commands in the preamble:

\AtBeginNote{\setbeamertemplate{itemize item}[triangle] \par}
\AtEndNote{\par}


(The \par commands are there to make sure that there's no unwanted run-in from the preceding text into the note text, and vice versa.)

-

I guess with beamer note you mean the article, or? If yes, it is fairly easy: Just redefine the symbol in the corresponding \mode block.

\mode<article>{%
\renewcommand{\labelitemi}{+}%
}
\mode<presentation>{\usetheme{Berlin}}


A while ago I have created an example showing how to create both, article and slides, in one document, have a look at: http://uweziegenhagen.de/?p=1053. I used the above command with this example.

In beamer, "notes" are (usually) things that are meant to show up on the presenter's own screen (e.g., on his/her laptop) but not on the main screen that the audience gets to see. See Section 19 of the manual, "Adding notes for yourself." –  Mico Jan 3 '12 at 19:43
