I'm using the Frankfurt theme and I have two questions about it:

  1. There are navigational circles that appear when I create subsections. They are equal to the number of pages in that section which is annoying because they are too many. I tried the following two solutions to remove them but both didn't work

    \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
  2. If I have many sections with relatively long titles, the titles don't fit in the navigation bar and they got trimmed. Is there a way to make the titles appear in two lines instead of one trimmed line?

Hi Ahmed, welcome to TeX.sx! I removed the thanks at the end. This is just the style here. Thanks is best expressed in the upvoting of answers that help you. – qubyte Feb 23 '12 at 7:23
Hi Mark. Thanks for that. Sorry it's my first time. By the way, is there something I did that prevents people from posting answers to my question ? – User_a Feb 23 '12 at 21:10
No need to be sorry! Sometimes these can take a while to get attention. A good way of getting more attention is to include a minimal working example, and then people can copy, paste and play with the code. – qubyte Feb 24 '12 at 4:18

  1. The navigation symbols are those normally placed at the bottom. To remove the circles you mentioned you can use:

    \setbeamertemplate{mini frames}{}
  2. Maybe you could use my answer from here?
