Using some of biblatex's on-board technologies we can make the code a bit shorter. (And I'm really not a fan of constructs such as \citeauthor{#2}, \citetitle{#2}, \citeyear{#2}, they go horribly wrong when several works are cited and they don't deal with pre- and postnotes that well. Granted, that might not be a problem here, but still ...) Note first that ...

OK. I came up with something which seems to work - that is, it survives absolutely minimal testing, but will no doubt break as soon as I try to use it in a real document. I am sure, however, that this cannot possibly be the simplest solution. There must be a more straightforward way of extracting the URL for use as a hyperlink target, mustn't there? I ...

First \visible command is from beamer not tikz. you can do that with a third variable \anim inside \foreach loop to control apparence of edges. Code \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \centering \begin{tikzpicture} [scale=.5,auto=left,minimum size=2mm,inner sep=0pt,outer sep=0pt,every ...

With \begin{columns}[T] you can have the columns aligned to the top. \documentclass[14pt,handout,t]{beamer} \usepackage{lmodern} \addtobeamertemplate{frametitle}{\vspace*{2cm}}{\vspace*{1mm}} \geometry{paperwidth=297mm,paperheight=210mm} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{lipsum} \setbeamersize{text margin left=100pt,text margin right=100pt} \begin{document} ...

If you want to use the default \footnote commands then you can consider not using the footline and redefine \footnoterule to display the blue line above the footnotes: \documentclass[xcolor={dvipsnames}]{beamer} \mode<presentation> { \usetheme{default} \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}%remove navigation symbols ...

By default the content of a beamer frame is vertically centered. So what you want to do is align the content at the top. For one frame you can do that like this. \begin{frame}[t] ... \end{frame} If you want to align all the frames at the top, add the t option when loading the beamer class. \documentclass[t]{beamer}

I would just put the title page into a plain frame. \frame[plain]{\titlepage} Personally I redefine make title like this: \def\maketitle{% \ifbeamer@inframe \titlepage \else \frame[plain]{\titlepage} \fi } This way I can use \maketitle directly in my presentations without having to put it into a frame. I don't really understand your ...

In your linked question Yiannis writes: When using the \DeclareMathSizes the first parameter for the text font must be exactly what is used in the class declaration. For example with Beamer rather declare \documentclass[10pt]{beamer}, otherwise the command will appear as it is not working. That is not a hundred percent correct. You have to use ...

\documentclass{beamer} \newcommand{\myitem}{ {\leavevmode \usebeamercolor[fg]{itemize item} \usebeamertemplate{itemize item}~~} } \begin{document} \frame { \frametitle{Marco TeĆ³rico} \begin{equation*} \setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[ball] \begin{array}{l} \left\{ \begin{array}{l} ...

You need to use the professionalfonts theme if using your own configuration to avoid unexpected weirdnesses cropping up at inconvenient moments. You do not need fontenc as far as I can tell. You do need lmodern because otherwise the default maths will still use Computer Modern, even though fontspec switches text to Latin Modern. I am not sure exactly what ...

I think the problem lies in the definition of northeast, especially in pgf@x=.5\pgf@xa and \pgf@y=.5\pgf@ya as this takes only half the page. So try without the .5 \savedanchor{\northeast}{ \pgf@y=.5\ht\pgfnodeparttextbox % height of the box \pgf@x=.5\wd\pgfnodeparttextbox % width of the box \addtolength{\pgf@x}{2ex} ...

With \setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}[triangle] you are replacing the complete label by a triangle. You need some new template: \documentclass[xcolor=dvipsnames]{beamer} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %\usetheme{Antibes} \usepackage[style=alphabetic,maxalphanames=1,backend=biber]{biblatex} ...

To patch "normal" frames, the solution can be found text justify in beamer Itemize has also already a solution on this side: Justify text inside itemize environment with beamer class But I could not find one to automatically justify the contents of columns. So I tried a bit, failed in the attempt to patch \begin{column}..., but with \column it works as ...

Simply put the colour modifications inside a {} \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \frame { \frametitle{Hello} \framesubtitle{Hi} { \setbeamercolor{block title}{use=structure,fg=white,bg=black} \setbeamercolor{block body}{use=structure,fg=black,bg=gray!60} \begin{block}{Say you will} \begin{itemize} \item ...

The reference point of an image is at its bottom. Add some space in the left column, \vspace{\topsep} is the same as what's added by the itemize environment in the right column. In other cases you can use \vspace{0pt}. \documentclass[14pt,handout,t]{beamer} \usepackage{lipsum} \geometry{paperwidth=297mm,paperheight=210mm} \setbeamersize{text margin ...

Following code shortens navigation line and includes page number on left side. Is this what you want? \documentclass[t]{beamer} \usetheme{Frankfurt} \usecolortheme{dove} \setbeamercolor{titlelike}{parent=structure} \usefonttheme{structuresmallcapsserif} \setbeamercolor{frametitle}{bg=light-gray} \definecolor{light-gray}{gray}{0.80} ...

Dirty hack, that uses the logo for the line and stole the example code from http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/290740/36296 since the question did not provide any. \documentclass[xcolor={dvipsnames}]{beamer} \usetheme{default} \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}%remove navigation symbols \setbeamertemplate{logo}{% \setlength{\unitlength}{1mm} % ...

As a workaround, one can reset to normal colour at the begin of every frame: %% Compile with xelatex \documentclass[handout]{beamer} \mode<handout> { \setbeameroption{show notes} \RequirePackage{pgfpages} \pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm] } \makeatletter \def\beamer@framenotesbegin{% at beginning of slide ...

Caveat: This 'hack' is a modification of http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3103989/how-do-i-change-the-footer-footline-of-a-single-frame-in-beamer. It only allows the change of the contents of the single line of the footline. This does not allow more than one line. (I do not know how to extend the height of the footline) Also note that the braces with ...
