I don't actually have a real problem, but I'd like to understand why beamer requires multiple compilations to get the slide count right.
I'm writing a presentation, so I often add a new frame, write something, and then compile the presentation to see how it looks. But every time a new frame is added the total number of slides isn't updated, so the last slide shows a
n+1/n label instead of
n+1/n+1 as I'd expect(where
n is the previous number of slides).
I've tried to search a bit but I couldn't find anything mentioning this behaviour.
Is this supposed to be the normal behaviour?
edit: I can reproduce this by doing the following steps:
- Create a random beamer presentation(using a style that shows the slide count e.g. AnnArbor) with one frame
- Compile it
- Add a new frame
- Compile again and the last slide will show the described behaviour.
