In Beamer, \begin{itemize}[<+->] causes items to appear one-by-one. However, item 1 is visible starting from the first slide itself. Is there a way to insert a pause before the first item too?

of course I can manually type

\item<2-> first
\item<3-> second
...

but is there a shortcut way to specify this?

You could put an explicit \pause before the itemize environment. Would that suffice? –  Loop Space Aug 15 '12 at 15:35
    
Hey, thanks! That works. For some reason, I thought pause was only allowed before \item –  Neha Karanjkar Aug 15 '12 at 16:50

Simply write \pause before the itemize environment. This will achieve the effect you want.
