# How to change partitioned frame title number from Roman to Arabic?

## Problem

When allowframebreaks is turned on, long data will be divided into several slides. Each slide in this partition has the same title ending with a unique number in Roman.

How to change this number from Roman to Arabic?

## Code Snippet

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]{A}
\lipsum[1-2]
\end{frame}
\end{document}


## Edit 1

On page 60 of beamer's manual there is an info about this but I have no idea how to do this because the convention and terminology used there is a bit confusing.

The beamer manual (section 8.1) describes how to do this, you need to change the beamer template frametitle continuation:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\setbeamertemplate{frametitle continuation}{\insertcontinuationcount}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]{A}
\lipsum[1-2]
\end{frame}
\end{document}
