# \partpage doesn't fit onto the slide

I am using beamer to write a presentation which is split into several parts. The title of one part is too long to fit on one single line, so there should be a line break. However the command \partpage displays the text on one single line. I have the impression that the issue is related to \insertpart, since the same behavior happens as well for this command.

Furthermore I noted that the problem disappears if I use pdflatex, which is however not possible for my presentation since I have many .eps figures.

Here is a minimal example which reproduces the problem:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\part{very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very long part title}
\frame{\partpage}
\frame{\insertpart}

\end{document}


Any help is appreciated.

• You can try \documentclass[hyperref=breaklinks]{beamer} but imho it would be better to use pdflatex and \usepackage{epstopdf}. This will convert your eps-files on the fly (if your system is not to old). – Ulrike Fischer May 21 '13 at 11:23
• Using the option hyperref=breaklinks solved the problem. \usepackage{epstopdf} did not work, maybe my system is indeed too old. – user31028 May 21 '13 at 11:53
