I am using LyX and the beamer template to write presentation slides for a conference paper, which has three authors. This is not a problem, until I notice that the third name gets cut off from the bottom left corner of the slide (see screenshot below). How can I fix this?

enter image description here

Technical Details:

  • Mac OS X 10.7.5 (Lion)
  • LaTeX Version 2.0 (build 150)
  • LyX Version 2.0.6
  • Which beamer theme are you using? Jun 12 '13 at 18:41
  • The one in the default beamer-conference-ornate-20min.lyx Jun 12 '13 at 18:42
  • And do you want to keep the name of the three authors in the footline of all your slides? Jun 12 '13 at 18:50
  • Preferably. Especially, since the space exists Jun 12 '13 at 18:50

One option is to reduce the font used for authors in the footline; you can try adding to the preamble the following:

\setbeamerfont{author in head/foot}{size=\tiny}

or (for even smaller size):

\setbeamerfont{author in head/foot}{size=\fontsize{4}{4.8}\selectfont}
