# Beamer theme Amsterdam

I would like to modify beamer theme Amsterdam (downloaded from the side http://latex.simon04.net the first topic) in this way:

In headlines I would like to get rid of the circles under the name of sections.

Could you edit your question and make it a little bit more specific on what exactly does not work as you expected it, please? – hakaze Aug 15 '12 at 10:41
Your question is not very clear...what did you expect? Can you give an minimum working example ... – Leeser Aug 15 '12 at 10:41
OK, good for you! I count the number of question marks and get zero, so I assume this was just for our information. If you'd like us to help you, it would make it a lot easier for us if you try making the changes you want, and then tell us what, if anything, went wrong. – Tomas Lycken Aug 15 '12 at 11:53

Take the following modified code of beamerthemeAmsterdam.sty and save as beamerthemeAmsterdamTeXsx.sty. It uses \insertsectionnavigationhorizontal instead of \insertnavigation in order to suppress the small circles representing the individual frames.

\DeclareOptionBeamer{compress}{\beamer@compresstrue}
\ProcessOptionsBeamer

\mode<presentation>

\useoutertheme[footline=authortitle]{miniframes}
\useinnertheme{circles}
\usecolortheme{whale}
\usecolortheme{orchid}

\definecolor{beamer@blendedblue}{rgb}{0.137,0.466,0.741}

\setbeamercolor{structure}{fg=beamer@blendedblue}
\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{parent=structure}
\setbeamercolor{frametitle}{fg=black}
\setbeamercolor{title}{fg=black}
\setbeamercolor{item}{fg=black}

{%
\end{beamercolorbox}
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\ifbeamer@theme@subsection%
\end{beamercolorbox}
\begin{beamercolorbox}[ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,%

You can then use it via \usetheme{AmsterdamTeXsx} in your preamble.
