I am using Lyx and Beamer in order to write my thesis presentation. When i insert a title/section in a new frame , it does not appear in preview.. why is that ?

How can i add titles in each frame of my presentation ?

  • Could you add a minimal working example (MWE), showing the issue ? It's close to impossible to help you otherwise. MWEs are described here meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/… – ach Jun 22 '13 at 18:40

Sections and the like does not appear in the default beamer theme, so the short answer is to use another theme. You can find a list of themes in the beamer manual, or the beamer theme matrix. (In the matrix, color themes are listed on top, layout themes on the left.)

To use a theme, go to Document --> Settings --> LaTeX preamble, and add \usetheme{<theme name>}. For example, to use the AnnArbor theme (seen in below screenshot), add


This theme adds section names to the top bar of the frames. To change the color theme, add \usecolortheme{<color theme name>} to the preamble.

You can also add titles to single frames, by writing it immediately after the word Frame (on the same line) in LyX. This will also appear in the default theme.
