# Beamer: remove the title highlight

I use the PaloAlto theme and the title of the title slide appears highlighted.

Is it possible to remove the highlight and modify the title font?

What you mean by highlighted? Which title do you mean? Frametitle, Title on first slide? Maybe you could provide a MWE. –  bloodworks Jan 13 '13 at 21:31

Try \setbeamercolor{titlelike}{parent=structure}.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{PaloAlto}

\setbeamercolor{titlelike}{parent=structure}

\begin{document}

\title{(Title)}
\author{(Author)}
\date{\today}
\maketitle

\end{document}


Standard output of PaloAlto:

You have to customize the color and the font theme:

To change the font: this command should typeset your title in huge slanted shape

\setbeamerfont{title}{size=\huge,serie=\slshape}


To change the color: this command should draw your title in yellow on red background

\setbeamercolor{title}{fg=yellow,bg=red}
