Is there a way to get beamer to automatically stick in a slide with a centered title whenever I use \section{title} or \subsection{title} or (heaven forbid) \subsubsection{title}? I'm hoping some package or command will do this for every time one of these commands is used, but I would settle for a \maketitle type command that would work within each section or subsection.

You can use the macros \AtBeginSection, \AtBeginSubsection and \AtBeginSubsubsection to automatically execute something at the beginning of each (sub)(sub)section. To create a title frame, beamer offers the commands \sectionpage and \subsectionpage. \subsubsectionpage is missing by default, but you can easily define it yourself:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{Ilmenau}

% Add support for \subsubsectionpage
\def\subsubsectionname{\translate{Subsubsection}}
\def\insertsubsubsectionnumber{\arabic{subsubsection}}
\setbeamertemplate{subsubsection page}
{
  \begin{centering}
    {\usebeamerfont{subsubsection name}\usebeamercolor[fg]{subsubsection name}\subsubsectionname~\insertsubsubsectionnumber}
    \vskip1em\par
    \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=4pt,center]{part title}
      \usebeamerfont{subsubsection title}\insertsubsubsection\par
    \end{beamercolorbox}
  \end{centering}
}
\def\subsubsectionpage{\usebeamertemplate*{subsubsection page}}

\AtBeginSection{\frame{\sectionpage}}
\AtBeginSubsection{\frame{\subsectionpage}}
\AtBeginSubsubsection{\frame{\subsubsectionpage}}

\begin{document}
\section{Section 1}
\subsection{Subsection 1}
\frame{}\frame{}
\subsection{Subsection 2}
\subsubsection{Subsubsection 1}
\frame{}
\section{Section 2}
\frame{}
\end{document}

a \subsubsectionpage

  • I think I may want to modify some of this to my preferences, but this is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

    I tried to just use \AtBeginSection{\frame{\sectionpage}}, I get a ! Missing \endgroup inserted. at the very end of the document. Do you have an idea what is causing this or should I ask a full question? Commented Jul 24, 2014 at 17:11

    Is there a way to remove the "Section X" over title and have just the actual section title? Commented Jul 22, 2015 at 13:00

    Yes, on the code above just delete this part: \begin{centering} {\usebeamerfont{subsubsection name}\usebeamercolor[fg] {subsubsection name}\subsubsectionname~\insertsubsubsectionnumber} \vskip1em\par
