# Beamer: handouts and itemize not working as expected [closed]

I am trying to create handouts with beamer (it is the first time I am using it). As you can see from the minimal code below, I am passing handouts as an option. I would expect that overlays be neglected in the handouts. If you compile the code, however, you will find out that items in the itemize environment are displayed on separate pages.

Do you have any ideas why?

\documentclass[xcolor=pdftex,dvipsnames,table,handouts]{beamer}

\date{Spring 2013}

\subtitle[Lecture 1]{Lecture 1 - The Need for Numerical Methods and Analysis}

Try handout instead of handouts. –  Andrew Stacey Jan 23 '13 at 10:36
Thanks Andrew, this was a very silly mistake. –  d.avitabile Jan 23 '13 at 11:00
