You're almost there: take advantage that many of standard commands (\item, \includegraphics, for example) are overlay-aware in beamer: \documentclass{beamer} \usefonttheme{serif} \begin{document} \begin{frame} Show some text \begin{itemize} \item<2-> show this item (text) ...

There are some ways to achieve this: Jumping \item must be prevented by introducing place holders (e.g. `\vphantom) \documentclass[serif]{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \onslide<1->{Theory on Brontosaurs} \begin{itemize} \item<2-> Brontosaurs are huge \only<3>{% \includegraphics{beeduck}% }% ...

Since you don't say what should happen to 2, I assume it should be visible throughout, along with the introductory text. If not, you can adjust this quite easily: \documentclass[serif]{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} Some Text here \begin{enumerate} \item<2> then I want this text to appear \item Then I want to hide 1 and appear 3 ...

When dealing with figures, it can be sufficient to use \tikz[overlay] inside \only: \only<.>{ \tikz[overlay,xshift=0em,yshift=0ex]{\draw node { % content goes here };} }

Verbatim material cannot appear in an argument to another command (up to a certain point you could try using an external file and inputting it with \lstinputlisting) and use \uncover on \onslide, but the best approach here is to use the onlyenv environment for your listing (since the frame contains verbatim material it requires the fragile option): ...

This creates a new environment overlayauto which works like overlayarea but computes the height, width and depth from the data. Note: this is like putting an \mbox in a math environment in that you need to use $...$ inside. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{environ} % used to replace \only \def\testonly<#1>#2{\setbox0=\hbox{#2}% ...

Sure you can do it. \hypertarget is overlay aware, so you can say something like \hypertarget<4>{label}{\beamerbutton{I'm on the fourth slide}} to place the target just on the fourth slide of a frame and then use elsewhere \hyperlink{label}{\beamerbutton{I jump to fourth slide of next frame}} to activate a button that will take you to the fourth ...

This works: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{block}{Pets} \begin{overlayarea}{\textwidth}{6cm} \begin{itemize} \item<2-> \strut Cats \only<3>{\begin{itemize} \item \strut Lazy \item \strut Cuddly \end{itemize}} \item<4-> \strut Goldfish \only<5>{\begin{itemize} ...

Another option is using the visible on style: \documentclass[10pt]{beamer} \usepackage{pgfplots} \tikzset{ invisible/.style={opacity=0}, visible on/.style={alt={#1{}{invisible}}}, alt/.code args={<#1>#2#3}{% \alt<#1>{\pgfkeysalso{#2}}{\pgfkeysalso{#3}} % \pgfkeysalso doesn't change the path }, } \begin{document} ...

Using \only seems to work. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{pgfplots} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis} \addplot {rnd}; \only<2->{ \addplot {rnd};} \only<3>{ \addplot {rnd};} \end{axis} \end{tikzpicture} \end{frame} \end{document}

You can select invidual slides in a handout as you want; you just need to specify that the relevant overlay commands apply in handout mode too (specifications with no mode default to beamer:). If you only want to use beamer and handout modes then it's easiest to do this with the mode key all: \documentclass[handout]{beamer} \begin{document} ...

You can use overlayarea: \begin{overlayarea}{<area width>}{<area height>} <environment contents> \end{overlayarea} For more details, consult beameruserguide page 84, section 9.5 Code: \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{overlayarea}{\textwidth}{0.5\textheight} \begin{itemize} \item<+-> ...

One option using the alert@ specification for overlays to highlight text on desired slides; for example, \item<3-|alert@3> shows the item text from the third slide on and highlights it on the third slide only. The color used to highlight the text can be changed using \setbeamercolor{alerted text}{fg=<color>} The code: ...

Use a \phantomized third image on slides one and two: \documentclass[10pt,table]{beamer} \usepackage{mwe} % <-- for dummy images \begin{document} \begin{frame} \frametitle{Plots: Data, Model, Data + Model} Example: Linear model--- Prestige $\sim$ Income + Education + Type \begin{itemize} \item <1->Data plot: \alert{marginal} relation ...

If the formula, or whatever it is, is inside an environment (theorem, definition, ...) and have more then one line, then the solution provided by tobias_k could fail (wrt my sense of style): suppose you have more then one \item (I use text for simplicity) inside an environment (definition, ...), then the gray background increase as the points go on, and it ...

Here's my preferred solution: one which uses a method for absolute positioning described here and here. It aligns the "X" perfectly. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} %remove navigation symbols \begin{frame} \begin{tikzpicture}[overlay, remember picture, shift={(current ...
