Using overlays and showing multiple graphs in the same slides and even text is really great but I am really wondering how can we show each piece of overlay while printing the slides or notes ? It seems some of the slide can have multiple pages in order to accurately show all the graphs and text especially when we use overlays such as \only<1-3 and \only<4-5>. If it is just a regular text and fills only one page then it should be fine. But often times it is more complex than that. Would anyone clarify what can we do under such circumstances ?

EDIT: MINIMAL EXAMPLE ADDED

What I mean here is that on the second slide I have three different tikz picture. Here I didn't include the picture on node (0,0). In my slide I am using the pictures. SO, how can I print all these three pictures on the same page ? In other cases also some of the text doesn't fit on the slides. I hope it is more understandable now.

  • Your question is not completely clear to me; can you please try to expand a little? Perhaps adding (the description of) some example of what you want to achieve? – Gonzalo Medina Jun 24 '13 at 18:51
  • I have added a minimal working example and tried to explain what I mean. I hope you understand it. – Jdbaba Jun 24 '13 at 19:09
  • Are you aware of the handout overlay specification? – Loop Space Jun 24 '13 at 19:11

    @Jdbaba: In specifying overlay options, you can add the handout:<number> option. For example, \only<1-3| handout:1>{content-1} will print content-1 that appears in frames 1 to 3 as the first page of the handout; \only<4-5| handout:2>{content-2} prints content-2 which appears in frames 4 and 5 as the second page of the handout; and \only<6-| handout:0>{content-3} will instruct beamer not to print content-3 that appears on frame 6 onwards. Notice that a space is needed between | and handout. – Herr K. Jun 24 '13 at 19:26

Converting my comments above into an answer:

In specifying overlay options, you can add the handout:<number> option. For example, \only<1-3| handout:1>{content-1} will print content-1 that appears in frames 1 to 3 as the first page of the handout; \only<4-5| handout:2>{content-2} prints content-2 which appears in frames 4 and 5 as the second page of the handout; and \only<6-| handout:0>{content-3} will instruct beamer not to print content-3 that appears on frame 6 onwards. Notice that a space is needed between | and handout.

To not show an item/graphic in the handout, simply set handout:0.
