I need to customize either the
PaloAlto themes, or just the
sidebar outer theme, in order to keep the logo in its default position (upper-left corner) while removing the sidebar. At the moment I have only been able to remove the sidebar (by using the
width=0 option, but this removes the logo as well.
As a side issue, I would also like to add an horizontal gray rectangle along the bottom of the slides, that would be immaterial to content layout, that is, that its presence does not alter the output of any contents in the slides, in the sense of scaling or rearranging it anyhow.
