With the help of \only<4>{target content} seems to achieve your goal. Note: visible and onslide won't work, but onslide* would work since it maps to \only while onslide+ also maps to visible, therefore, won't work either. Code: \documentclass{beamer} \beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{<+->} %stepwise uncovering \usepackage{hyperref} ...

In ConTeXt, Layers (also see the details manual) are the canonical method for absolute positioning. Although, you can use absolute coordinates (x=<dimen>, y=<dimen>) to position layers, for creating slides is is nicer to use relative coordinates (lines=<num>, column=<num>). To use such coordinates, use: \setuplayout[grid=yes, ...

The following solution is really ugly and I hope someone finds a nicer one. I set the papersize explicitly to A4 (the height is half of it, because it consists of two slides): \documentclass[handout, xcolor={dvipsnames,table}]{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} % A4 Paper Size and some small additional margin \paperheight=143.5mm %297mm / 2 - 5mm ...

The problem is not just for subscopes; simple scopes will also show the undesired behaviour. The problem is that you are wrongly using the visible on option (orange is also wrongly used) independently of the on background layer specification; the problem is solved as soon as visible on (and also orange) is passed as an option to the on background layer ...

This is a proposal. The absolute position in tikz is utilized here. A) Define 5 corners as (A) (B) (C) (D) (CC) respectively via \node[] (label) at (current page.<anchor position>){ }; Then current page.center is chosen as the origin for absolute positioning. (More detail explanation is written in the brown box). B) Place nodes at proper ...

probsoln only defines the solution environment if it isn't already defined. If you actually want to use probsoln's version of solution you need to undefine the solution environment before loading probsoln. Undefining an environment is similar to undefining a command, but you need to take into account the command used to end the environment as well as the one ...

Currently I'm working on my own XeLaTeX Beamer Template. It isn't finished yet, especially the colortheme has to be overworked. My goal was to make it as minimalistic as possible without losing to much information like the section name and the page counter. Here are some screens (from an example presentation): You can get the source code and all ...

The first part of this echoes Herbert's answer but I posted it as a comment 8 minutes prior to that answer and so claim this answer is legitimate ;). (But I will remove it if Herbert objects or if anybody else, not being Herbert, both objects and can give me a good reason why they have a right to object despite not being Herbert.) Original Question ...

Upgrading to TeXlive 2014 (with the latest packages as of today) solved the problem.

The workaround is simple: boxit.mx(\btex {\begin{minipage}[t]{1em}M U X\end{minipage}} etex); The documentation tells that the braces around environments is necessary when mpost is used as the argument to a command, which is always the case with beamer.

Something like this may be a start though it needs tidying: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{multirow} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{tabular}{|*{4}{c|}} \hline & & & \\\hline \multirow{3}*{\includegraphics[width=.2\textwidth]{example-image-golden-upright}} & \includegraphics[width=.2\textwidth]{example-image-a} ...

Use \let\ofn\insertframenumber \renewcommand{\insertframenumber}{% \texorpdfstring{\protect\makebox[1em]{\ofn}}{\ofn}% } so the box is used only for printing, while the naked number is used in the bookmarks. Here's a possibly better idea: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[sfdefault]{cabin} % this makes the effect worse \usetheme{Boadilla} % for ...

There's a good reason you didn't find it in the manual; [h] is not a valid optional argument for frame, so using it will trigger an error: ! Package keyval Error: h undefined. See the keyval package documentation for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help. ... l.5 \begin{frame}[h] Content ...

[Converting the previous comment into an answer] To work around this problem, you can add \addtocounter{figure}{1} before the second figure. This is a way to increase the number by hand.

It seems to me that none of the standard themes fits this exact layout, so you'll just have to take the closest and adapt it yourself to your needs. Here's a start: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Madrid} \usecolortheme{seagull} \beamertemplatenavigationsymbolsempty \setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{} \setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[default] ...

Something like this! Here only tikz package is used to assure that the return button is located at the same place on the explanation page. Every beamer page that has links should have a label (main, here, there in this example), then use the following command at proper locations. \hyperlink{destination label}{\beamerreturnbutton{Go or Back or any text}}; ...

Based on my answer to my question, the following code does what you want (at least with texlive2013 last updated in may or so) \documentclass[beamer,pstricks]{standalone} \usepackage{etex} \def\myxmin{-7.5}% \def\myymin{-7.5}% \def\myxmax{7.5}% \def\myymax{7.5}% \newlength{\pspicwidth} \newlength{\pspicheight} \newlength{\border} ...

Here's one option, defining a headline template to accomodate the logos at the desired locations: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Malmoe} \usecolortheme{whale} \def\includelogoi{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm,keepaspectratio]{example-image-a}} \def\includelogoii{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm,keepaspectratio]{example-image-b}} \makeatletter ...

You can work around this warning by using \documentclass{beamer} \title{The Title} \author{The Author} \renewcommand\appendixname{Appendix} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \titlepage \end{frame} \section{First Section} \begin{frame}\frametitle{First Section} This is a slide. \end{frame} \appendix \section{Appendix} ...

Here is a suggestion to reduce the size of all footnotes: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \setbeamertemplate{footnote}{% \tiny% \parindent 1em\noindent% \raggedright \hbox to 1.8em{\hfil\insertfootnotemark}\insertfootnotetext\par% }% \setlength\footnotesep{0pt} \begin{document} \begin{frame} ...

The problem is in pgf (file pgfutil-latex) with the redefinition of preview's shipout which causes a problem in the created dvi/ps file. It creates always two pages instead of one. However, here is a workaround: \listfiles \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{auto-pst-pdf} \makeatletter \let\Test@pr@shipout\pr@shipout%% save the original definition ...

One option using the multicol package: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{multicol} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \frametitle{Outline splitted} \begin{multicols}{2} \tableofcontents[pausesections,sections={1-10}] \end{multicols} \end{frame} \section{Test1} \frametitle{Test} \begin{frame} Test \end{frame} \section{Test2} ...

See the improved version below!!! First: Quick and dirty solution: This works, as long there are no \chapter commands, which reset the section counter. However, the subsection counter is reset by \section: Either one drops the resetting or a special redefinition of \subsection is applied, using another totalsubsection counter. After all, the value is ...

I would recommend to switch to xfrac fractions here. If you do not like this, you will have to stretch the vertical space between your items. I also added the two ideas mentioned in comment by cornelius. % arara: pdflatex \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{xfrac} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{itemize} \item \begin{itemize} ...

Using biblatex, \citeurl{<bibkey>} will print the URL associated with the citation key <bibkey>: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @Article{Jilvero2012, Title = {Heat requirement for regeneration of aqueous ammonia in post-combustion carbon dioxide capture }, Author ...

Playing a little bit with: \setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[circle] \setbeamercolor{local structure}{fg=red!50!black}\color{red!50!black} \setlength{\leftmargini}{6pt} \setlength{\labelsep}{1pt} \color{red!50!black} \itemsep1pt I came up with the following MWE: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} ...

The problem in your code is that you forgot the mandatory argument (even if empty) for the beamerboxesrounded environment. This will work: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{beamerboxesrounded}{} % Add a newline here \begin{itemize} \item 1 \item 2 ...

Tricky one, but doable if you work systematically. You might want to look at my guide to beamer overlays (also available as a TUGboat article, currently only to TUG members). What you need to do is use the idea of relative slide positions, indicated by +, . and numbers in parenthesis. I'll explain the detail in comments in the code (trying to gie this ...

If choosing another fonttheme you will see, that beamer makes a difference between textsl and textit. \documentclass{beamer} \usefonttheme{serif} \begin{document} \begin{frame}{} \textsl{Welcome to my world!} \textit{Welcome to my world!} \end{frame} \end{document}

You have relevant keys in enumitem itself: nosep or noitemsep. Also, instead of adding horizontal space between label and item body for each item, set labelsep in the options. Last, I replaced TeX syntax ({\it…}) with LaTeX syntax (\emph{…}). Final advice: you should make your definition a theorem-like environment: formatting (boldface) could be ...

A possible solution is use of \vspace{-xxpt} right before \item. Code \documentclass[xcolor=x11names,compress]{beamer} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{document} Before: \textbf{Definition 1.1} A {\it{design}} is a pair $(X,\mathcal{A})$ iff: ...

\setlist{nolistsep} can reduce a little bit. Probably need to go through the package manual.

I managed to redefine \beamer@newblock so that the text in the author block is saved and then later used after the title block. I used the definition of the command in beamerbaselocalstructure.sty (Till Tantau, Vedran Miletić) as the starting point for my modifications. Note that the bibliography entry author template is now used for the title and the title ...

For this, the PDF specification provides navigation nodes. However, this feature is only implementeded in Adobe Reader and it works only in Full Screen mode The following example contains two supplementary slides. To jump over them during a presentation, Adobe Reader must be used, which must be in Full Screen mode (Ctrl-L), the left and right mouse ...

The following MWE will work, removing \usepackage{cite} and using a different style, like apalike. The icon can be easily removed as shown in the MWE. Line breaks are inherent to the style, either write the 3 lines shown in the MWE or create your own style that doesn't include line breaks using makebst. More styles can be downloaded from ...

The problem is the comma inside the <,>, which confuses tikz parser which takes it as a key separator. The solution is to enclose in braces that part, i.e: \draw node at (ONE) [select on=<{\magic,\selected}>]{ONE} ...;

When your extra information is not too long, you could try to use layers. If somebody asks, you switch between layers in your document. After this, you can switch back to your presentation layer and continue. This will not help if your additional material contains many slides (you could define multiple layers, but I think it will become complicated). And ...

Simply pass the align=<value> key to the title node and/or use text width=<length>, so line breaks are allowed. Here's a little example completing your snippets to a complete example: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \setbeamertemplate{title page}{% \begin{tikzpicture} \node[text ...

Frames containing verbatim material should be declared fragile; also you don't really want that dramatic indentation, which will be kept in the listing. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{alltt} \begin{document} \begin{frame}[fragile] \frametitle{Beispiel Mergesort} \begin{alltt} mergesort :: (Ord a, Trans a) => [a] -> [a] mergesort [] = [] ...

Hiding other subsections is easy: it's enough to use the hideothersubsections option (either for the theme or for the sidebar outer theme). Hiding other sections is not so simple; it involves a redefinition of \insertverticalnavigation as implemented in beamerbasenavigation.sty. Hiding the navigation bar from the title frame can be achieved using the plain ...

Customizing a beamer theme might require a considerable amount of work, since a theme involves a lot of elements and unfortunately just a singlr frame dosen't give enough information about all the elements involved in the theme. Below I present an option which produces a similar result for the elements showed in the image attached to the question. ...

Possibility One The easiest way would be, not modifying the margins! If you want a picture to be shown bigger there are other ways, e.g. \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Warsaw} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \hspace*{-1cm} \includegraphics[width=1.16\textwidth]{example-grid-100x100bp.pdf} \end{frame} ...

I think beamer itself uses beamercolorboxes, so you could also use theme to get a good imitation \documentclass[xcolor=dvipsnames]{beamer} \usetheme{Warsaw} % thème \usecolortheme{wolverine} % variante de couleur \setbeamerfont*{title}{series=\bfseries} \title{La Bote Questions} \begin{document} \begin{frame}[plain] \titlepage ...

There are several options: You can use \only: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \only<1>{Roses}\only<2>{Flowers} are red. \end{frame} \end{document} You can use \alt: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \alt<2>{Flowers}{Roses} are red. \end{frame} \end{document} The result:

If I've understood correctly, you wish to display all frames of the picture on the first slide but only the second frame on the second slide. If so, you can do this by specifying the slides to show as an optional argument to the frame environment for the second slide: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{filecontents} ...

A non-answer using pdftk With the existing solution (the MWE), the last spurious slide (in the cases where it exists) can be easily removed with the help of pdftk (although this sort of post-production makes me feel dirty inside): pdftk "input.pdf" cat 1-r2 output "output.pdf" Another possibility would be to go with an entirely pdftk solution. I put ...
