I need to write a beamer presentation for my upcoming thesis defense and chose the Palo Alto style.
My problem with the Palo Alto style is, that my name and the title of the presentation should not appear in the sidebar, yet appear in the footer of the presentation.
(Therefore short and long name/title don't work since providing an empty short name/title would also leave the footer empty).
Is there an option / (if not, workaround) for suppressing author and title in the sidebar only?
Thanks in advance, any input is appreciated :)
