# Modify flip beamer theme

Recently I came across flip beamer theme. You can find it here

I didn't like the current frame/total frames page numbering style so I added in the .tex file the following lines

\newcommand*\oldmacro{}%
\let\oldmacro\insertshorttitle%
\renewcommand*\insertshorttitle{%
\oldmacro\hfill%


but it didn't work. I thought of trying to see what's going on in the .sty files. In beamerouterthemeFlip.sty I replaced

\node at (\paperwidth-5ex,4ex){\small$^\text{\insertframenumber}/_\text{\inserttotalframenumber}$};


with

 \node at (\paperwidth-5ex,4ex) {\small $\insertframenumber$};


and it worked.

Now I want to add smoothbars on top...The ones with circle...Something like that

In .tex file I added

\useoutertheme[subsection=true]{smoothbars}


but not only it didn't work, it somehow ruined the beauty of the theme.

Is there a way to achieve that? Circles on top without ruinning everything...

I am also trying to add a logo but using

\logo{\includegraphics[scale=.05]{logo.jpg}}


It is not working...

Concerning your problem with the smoothbars theme: Calling \useoutertheme[subsection=true]{smoothbars} before \usetheme[...]{Flip} work for me. Still you will get many ** WARNING ** Annotation out of page boundary. by XeLaTeX. –  Henri Menke Sep 6 '13 at 18:15

Logo is inserted with \insertlogo macro. For this, you need to uncomment line 171 in beamerouterthemeFlip.sty
