I would like to know if there is a beamer option to suppress all frame titles.

I suspect not, since this may seem like an odd thing to do. The reason I want to do it is because I have to make two versions of a presentation -- one standard version, and one version with no frame titles, no margins, and possibly larger font. (I will import the second version into Prezi.)

I am using an ifthen boolean to compile one or the other version, so I suppose I could start each frame as follows:

\begin{frame}{} % no frame title
\begin{frame}{Here is my frame title}

but that seems a bit tedious.

Set the frametitle template to nothing:


A complete example:




\frametitle{Test Frame}


Commenting out the line \setbeamertemplate{frametitle}{} you'll get the titles back.

Awesome! Thanks!! Now I can just use one ifthen command with \setbeamertemplate{frametitle}{} inside. – William DeMeo May 21 '12 at 5:01
