I'm working on a document and tried to change the way enumeration items look with the line

\setbeamertemplate{enumerate mini template}{i)}

found in the documentation BeamerUserGuide on page 114. Whatever I tried, I did not work. Okay - for now I got a workaround - but I'm interested, how to use that template.

Any ideas?

Please post a full minimal example, and as you have a 'work around' that too would be nice – Joseph Wright Jan 26 '11 at 8:06

@Hendrik: This is a good hint. Thank you! I further just found the thread for notifications: I only got a notification (email) for the new answer - but not for your comment. – Bastian Ebeling Jan 28 '11 at 6:39

\setbeamertemplate{enumerate mini template}{1-\insertenumlabel}

  \item foo 
  \item bar
  \item foo
  \item bar
  \item foo
  \item bar

Good morning Herbert, this is really fine. I did not know, that it is needed to specify the enumerate item type at the end of the \begin{enumerate} line like here [(i)]. I thought one only needs to use the template. Have I missed that in the documentation? I think it is not explained there, or? THANK YOU! – Bastian Ebeling Jan 28 '11 at 6:33
