The page labels in the .pdf file are actually independent of the page numbers in the .aux file. The page labels are also set during shipout but by the hyperref package. The pgfpages package however ships out a physical page after the next/following logical page is finished. This is necessary for the 'two screens with optional second' layout to allow ...

You can use the \pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{<number>}{<options>} macro (as you already did) where <number> is the logical number of the frame (1 is above left, 2 is above right, …) and <options> are options, e.g. resized width = <length> width of the resulting frame, <length> can be given in a percentage of ...

I would just use pdfnup for the task: pdfnup --nup 1x3 --no-landscape --scale 0.9 --delta "0 1cm" --no-tidy slides.pdf yields a file slides-nup.pdf that with the intended layout: The pdfnup shell script is part of the pdfjam collection, which is included in most Linux distros. For MacOS it is available via MacPorts, fink, or brew. On Windows, it ...

The method I selected was basically what I outlined in my question: I write my beamer slides for class with the aspectratio=169 option. The projector in the room has a 4:3 aspect ratio but the letterboxing is not a noticeable issue for projection If anything it makes the slides easier to see since students in the back don't have the bottom of the screen ...

There are some timing issues, that I only partially understand. But part of the problem is that at the beginning of the frame when you try to construct the surrounding notes, the material for this has not yet been defined. pgfpages is good enough to wait for this, I believe what you are seeing on page 1 is triggered by the code excuted at the beginning of ...

You could do this by some sneaky border code stuff which threw away the given path (which is a box around each subpage) and drew just the bottom line for the relevant pages but I don't think that would look all that great since the lines wouldn't join up and wouldn't be vertically centred (as the pages are slightly shrunken). So here's an alternative which ...

Looks like no, unless someone has a fix the author isn't aware of. From the Beamer manual, section 4.6.2 (Printing the Handout): In such cases you can use the pgfpages package, which works directly with pdflatex, lualatex, xelatex and latex plus dvips. Note however that this package destroys hyperlinks. This is due to fundamental flaws in the ...

The preable should be: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} \setbeameroption{show notes on second screen} etc. See the Beamer User Guide sections 19.6 and 22.

Using textpos with the absolute option causes different output when using pgfpages (it doesn't cause problems with the handout option when not using pgfpages), even when using \nofiles, because the absolute position is in terms of the physical page, not the logical page. To display a logo in the header, one would ideally use a beamer (outer) theme designed ...

pgfpages seems to be running into issues with Beamer, at least according to https://bitbucket.org/rivanvx/beamer/issue/183/problem-with-beamer-and-pgfpages-using (I'm having the same problem). What I do now is ps2dpf the latex/dvips output (without pgfpages) - which will scale up to the right presentation size - and then run a small pdflatex job on it, ...

This works: Just remove absolute option for textpos and re-tune the logo position: %\documentclass [11 pt, xcolor=pdftex,x11names,table]{beamer} \documentclass[11 pt, handout,x11names,table]{beamer} \usepackage{pgf, pgfpages, pgfplots} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} %\usepackage{color} %\usepackage{pdfpages} ...

You can use the components from Compiling only a page range or page selection: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pgfpages}% http://ctan.org/pkg/pgf \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=2.5mm,landscape] % Taken from http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/96256/5764 \usepackage{multido,atbegshi,etoolbox}% ...

This should in principle be possible by not employing the pgfpages package that ships with beamer, but the more generic (1) pdfpages package (note the pdf vs pgf in the package name) in conjuction with (2) pax. From the pdfpages documentation: Links and other interactive features of PDF documents When including pages of a PDF only the so called content ...

Here is an example using the package pdfpages that I used in order to do handouts. First, run your beamer document with handout option and call it prep_handout.pdf for example. Then run this tex file to create the handout with several frames per page. Here I used fancyhdr in order to manage the headers/footers. Although you must create a new tex file, ...

Thanks for your answer! I expand your answer a little bit, so that it is possible to enter different length and not to think about ratios. Now one can enter a page border and a BCOR length for the top. The border shrink now works as it should. \documentclass[compress, handout]{beamer} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} ...

I'd look at pdfjam, particularly at pdfnup. Its argument list can be intimidating, but it is extremely flexible. AFAIU, internally it uses LaTeX to do the dirty job of placing multiple pages on one sheet.

I found a way to do it: First, I compile my full text to full.pdf. And then do a run with the following code: \usepackage{pgfpages} \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=-30mm,landscape] \usepackage{pdfpages} \begin{document} \includepdf[pages={6-12}]{full.pdf} \end{document} I had to adjust the border manually by shrinking them negatively ...

The implementation of animate uses PDF-Annotations, very much as hyperref does for all sorts of hyperlinks. PDF Annotations don't get scaled properly while producing multiple-frames-per-page handouts using the pgfpages sub-package. From the PGF-3.0.0 Manual, §85: A word of warning: using pgfpages will destroy hyperlinks. Actually, the hyperlinks are ...

This is not an answer but another solution to your problem. What I propose is to draw all your labels in a file and make copies with pdfpages package help. Your labels file will be: %----labels.tex ---------% \documentclass{article} \usepackage[paperwidth=2in,paperheight=2in,nohead,nofoot]{geometry} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \thispagestyle{empty} ...
