# Centered frame title in beamer

How to set up beamer in a document so that frame titles are centered? Most of the themes seem to use left aligned frame titles.

-

You can control the title alignment by using the second optional argument of the frametitle template (See page 75 of the beamer documentation):

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}

\setbeamertemplate{frametitle}[default][center]

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{test}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Unfortunately this solution does not work well with some themes, like Rochester, which I use with the option height=\baselineskip. In this case the title frame height is completely ignored. –  Romildo Mar 9 '12 at 19:15
@Romildo: in this case, simply add \addtobeamertemplate{frametitle}{\vspace{-1.6\baselineskip}} to my solution. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 9 '12 at 22:10
