I am making a presentation in Beamer. I am using smoothbars as an outer theme. However I am having a problem when a section has many frames, as indicated in the following image

\definecolor{LHCblue}{RGB}{4, 114, 255}
\usepackage[bars]{beamerthemetree} % Beamer theme v 2.2
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]
\setbeamercovered{higly dynamic}
\usetheme[watermark=ntua-logo.jpg]{Ilmenau} % Beamer theme v 3.0
\useoutertheme[subsection=true]{smoothbars}%Beamer Outer Theme-circles on top

\useinnertheme{circles} %rectangle bullet points instead of circle ones
\setbeamercolor{navigation symbols dimmed}{fg=red!80!black}
\setbeamercolor{navigation symbols}{fg=red!80!black}
\title[SRS/APV readout with mmDAQ/Recomm\hspace{1.5cm} Stony Brook, NYC]{rd51 mm     tracker \& SRS/APV readout using mmDAQ/Recomm}
\author[Stamatopoulos N. Athanasios\hspace{2.5cm}{athanasios.stamatopoulos@cern.ch}]    {Stamatopoulos N. Athanasios}




I only included the titlepage just to have an output. If you want me I can add some more plots as sections in order to achieve many circles.

A way to fix this is to change section's name so as to fit more circles, but I think it's not the best. Is there another way to do it, without changing inner theme's height?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The mini frames (that's what these little circles are called) are controlled by the outer theme, so in order to help you, we'll have to know what you specified using \useoutertheme. Please provide a complete minimum working example that produces the overflowing mini frames as shown in your screenshot. – diabonas Oct 1 '12 at 10:59
I will do it asap!!! – Thanos Oct 1 '12 at 13:15
What version of beamer do you have? With my beamer.clsfrom 2011/09/12 the output looks good. (Also slidestop is replaced by t and TikZ annoys me that the snakes library is superseded by decorations …) Update your TeX distribution. – Qrrbrbirlbel Oct 1 '12 at 13:53
All I can tell is that I am running MikTex 2.8.3759. I typed beamer -version on a command prompt but I cannot find out. Isn't there a way to fix it? – Thanos Oct 1 '12 at 14:42
@Thanos Try updating MiKTeX as described in the manual. Even better, download and install the latest version 2.9. – diabonas Oct 1 '12 at 16:23
