I used to do this according to Andrew's solution until I read his note #2, and it reminded me that PGF's keys can do pretty much anything. The key (excuse the pun) is to create a key that processes other keys conditional on the slide number: \tikzset{onslide/.code args={<#1>#2}{% \only<#1>{\pgfkeysalso{#2}} }} Using \pgfkeysalso doesn't ...

The simplest way is to use the onimage package from the From Answers to Packages project, which implements the answer given in Drawing on an image with TikZ. To use the package: Download the file onimage.dtx from bazaar.launchpad.net/~tex-sx/tex-sx/development/files, run pdflatex on it, and move the resulting .sty file to your working directory. Then you ...

This issue is addressed in the beamer manual in section 9.5 Dynamically Changing Text or Images, p.85 for v.3.10. You need to use either the overlayarea environment which is "more flexible but less user friendly" or the overprint environment. \begin{overlayarea}{⟨area width⟩}{⟨area height⟩} ⟨environment contents⟩ \end{overlayarea} ...


29

Wrap your code fragment inside the overlayarea environment.

You can include the picture into a TikZ node and then draw some rectangles over it. For example, \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \frametitle{ESR1} \begin{center} Functional analysis \end{center} \begin{center} \begin{tikzpicture} ...

In short, \only<>{} does not render the braced material at all except on the named slides, while \onslide<> renders the material until the next \onslide, sort of like an \item, but, on the off slides, covers it (according to the preference given in \setbeamercovered; i.e. transparent or invisible). There are other alternatives, for example, ...

Before looking at how . works, I think it's worth a brief look at how + works as in an overlay specification, and to link that to a 'plain' specification containing only explicit numbers. I'll take the offsets last, as they are more complex. For the simple case of just numbers \begin{itemize} \item<1-> From the first slide \item<2-> From ...

You can overlay the symbols the following way: Box the wider one and let the other one lap over it (using \rlap or \llap). The correct centering is achieved by placing the second character into a box with the equal width but using \hss to center it. The correct size for the different math modes can be adjusted using \mathchoice. \documentclass{article} ...


22

You could also use the Plain macro \ooalign: $\mathrel{\ooalign{\hss?\hss\cr=}}$\bye

Use \layout form the layout package. This produces: and the details on the bottom: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{layout} \begin{document}\layout \end{document}

2nd attempt (Warning: TikZ 3.0 is required!) Additional filled requirements (see 1st attempt below for all other filled requirements): Allow for "decay" via special prev styles. Each named keyword (such as kw) must provide three styles: kw, special kw and special prev kw. The names of "program counter" (\pc) and its previous value (\pcprev) can be chosen ...

As Andrew Stacey pointed out beamer provides an own \newcommand<> that deals a little better with overlay specification. It is now possible to use \tikzMe{BCD}<+>. As the overlay-specification argument has the delimiters built-in, so changes need to be made to the beameralert style. I opted for two versions; these styles are equivalent: ...

Simply write \pause before the itemize environment. This will achieve the effect you want.


17

Here's a possible way to reference overlays by name: \makeatletter \DeclareRobustCommand*{\savepause}[1]{\only<1>{\immediate\write\@auxout{\string\pauseentry{\the\c@framenumber}{#1}{\the\c@beamerpauses}}}} \newcommand*{\usepause}[1]{\@ifundefined{pauses@\the\c@framenumber @#1}{1}{\@nameuse{pauses@\the\c@framenumber @#1}}} ...

Following up the discussion of diabonas answer, here my suggestion. The idea to use phantom boxes seems the way to go. Here the two alternatives are boxed so that they can be measured. The code could be improved to detect the mode (text, math, display math, etc.) by itself and avoid the re-boxing which happens in the phantom commands. \documentclass{beamer} ...

Since you have an untagged environment, you can use \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{align*} \onslide<1->{a &= b \\} \onslide<2->{b &= c \\} \onslide<3>{\Rightarrow \quad a &= c} \end{align*} \end{frame} \end{document} For a tagged environment additional work has to be done, as ...

As you already mentioned, enumitem "disturbs" beamer. This is because the document class (beamer in this case) defines (or redefines) all the necessary commands/macros and environments to it's liking. Then, each loaded package does the same sequentially. As such, since enumitem follows the document class, it redefines the itemize (and other) environments, ...

I can provide you a very basic solution: it is not perfect, but actually does what you wonder. Initially I defined two tikzstyles to characterize whether the block is alerted or not: \tikzset{visib/.style={rectangle,color=blue,fill=blue!10,text=black,draw,text opacity=0.4, text width=#1,align=flush center}} ...

The \caption command is not "overlay specification aware". Instead of \caption<1>{Hallo} \caption<2>{Welt} do \caption{\only<1>{Hallo}\only<2>{Welt}}


14

can also be done with a simple tabular \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xcolor,calc} \newcommand\strikeout[2][]{% \begin{tabular}[b]{@{}c@{}} \makebox(0,0)[cb]{\textcolor{blue}{#1}} \\[-0.2\normalbaselineskip] \rlap{\color{red}\rule[0.5ex]{\widthof{#2}}{0.5pt}}#2 \end{tabular}} \begin{document} Now is the the time for all good ...

It is possible to use a {tikzpicture} and overlay it: \documentclass[10pt]{beamer} \usetheme{Szeged} \usecolortheme{dolphin} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage{pgf} \usepackage{tikz} \setbeamercovered{transparent=25} %Uncover text transparently \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{itemize} \item<1> first item ...

The simplest way would be to use the \only command instead of \uncover. You could also put the formulas into the same \align block, making the code more compact. \begin{align*} \only<1-1>{E=mc^1} \only<2-2>{E=mc^2} \only<3-3>{E=mc^3} \end{align*} For more information, and advanced techniques, see section 9.5 of the Beamer ...

The <handout:O> syntax tells beamer to remove something from a slide in the handout version. It can also be used to tell beamer to put things on different slides in the handout version. Thus saying <handout:2> says "make sure that there is a second slide in the handout version and put this on it.". Thus: \documentclass[handout]{beamer} ...

Damn you Caramdir, four minutes too late! Anyway, here's what I came up with. Caramdir's is at least as good, but mine is a bit closer to your syntax, maybe... \documentclass[english,ignorenonframetext,table]{beamer} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[latin9]{inputenc} \setcounter{secnumdepth}{3} \setcounter{tocdepth}{3} \usepackage{graphicx} ...

Two problems with your first attempt: overlay keyword. Probably you wrote it because you wanted to overlay two figures, but that's not the purpose of this keyword. Inside a single tikzpicture all what you draw is indeed overlayed, by the order in which you draw things. The keyword is used when you want a tikzpicture to be overlayed on the surrounding text ...

You can use the \only notation and the ulem package for strike through. The code would look like this: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{ulem} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{itemize} \item\only<1>{World peace}\only<2->{\sout{World peace}} \item<2-> Peace in our neighbourhood \end{itemize} \end{frame} ...

You can use postaction and draw the patterns after filling. \documentclass[tikz,12pt]{standalone} \usetikzlibrary{patterns} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[line width=1.5pt] \coordinate (A) at (2,2); \coordinate (B) at (2,1.2); \coordinate (C) at (3,2); \coordinate (D) at (3,1.2); \draw[fill=white] (A) circle (0.5); \draw[fill=white, ...


12

You can put \pause before the \begin{itemize} line.

For fans of tikzstyles, here are a bunch of styles that might help in made visible elements as draw, fill and shade upon providing overlay specifications. The code: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{shapes.geometric} \tikzset{ invisible/.style={opacity=0,text opacity=0}, visible ...

This is built into beamer: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{itemize}[<only@+-+(4)>] \item one \item two \item three \item four \item five \item six \item seven \item eight \item nine \item ten \end{itemize} \end{frame} \end{document} ...
