How can I set things up so that my \frametitle has the same indentation as the main body of text in my slide?

You can use \setbeamersize to change the value of text margin left so that the tile and the left margin have the same value; depending on the used theme, you will have to adjust the value for text margin left:


\setbeamersize{text margin left=1.2em}


\frametitle{Some title}

enter image description here

You need to redefine the frametitleof the template via \setbeamertemplate:


\frametitle{Hallo Welt!}



If you are using an existing template, have a look for this command in the corresponding style file and adjust it accordingly.
