# Changing Margins in Stockton Beamer Theme

I am creating a presentation with beamer using Stockton theme. You can find tex file here

I have two questions to ask. How can I change the margins of a slide? For the example below, I would like to change the margins following the black lines.

-
The screen shots on the link to the theme don't have this black frame. Maybe you can copy the code you used for this frame. –  jenson_bo Oct 9 '12 at 12:21
no, it's all the same code. I just draw the black frame with Paint, to illustrate what I want. I want to take margins up to this frame. –  Murat Arat Oct 9 '12 at 12:23
Please I mean please don't fill the slides with text. –  percusse Oct 9 '12 at 12:41

You can basically use \setbeamersize{text margin left=1em,text margin right=1em} to set the margins on the left and right. Just change the 1em to whatever margin you like.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Stockton}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\setbeamersize{text margin left=1em,text margin right=1em}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item   \lipsum[4]
\item   \lipsum[4]
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


But please do not use that much text on a slide, as percusse mentioned...
